The reciprocity of position and bankroll

By Tommy Angelo

"So the last shall be first, and the first will be the last." - Jesus

Think of all the poker hands. L think huge number of hands played on the Internet, then add all hands played in parties at home and in the casinos. Now think at all stages of these hands, street by street. All these streets. Millions, billions, of zilliards, c is a lot. Now, take this into consideration. All these street have something in common: someone goes there first and someone is going to last.

I am agree with all those who think of playing last is better than playing first. However, we must slow down here, since it is complicated. Reciprocity of position n is not the difference between the first and the last. (C) is the difference between the first and the last. Looking through the glasses of reciprocity, the most advantageous position n belongs not to one who plays last. It belongs to the player who plays the last most often.

L advantage to play the last exists in all the rounds of betting. It is always present, at any time, just as l advantage of playing at home when one part of football. In professional football leagues, each team plays half of its matches at home and the other half abroad, for the sake d fairness. The rule does not allow a team to create a benefit from reciprocity match at home/match abroad avoiding simply to play abroad. However, poker, we are authorized to do so. We can sleep our parties 'abroad', our bad positions, and thus, more often play last than first, and therefore, create us an advantage.

The reciprocity of the bankroll

There are first your net worth. Then, it s is a matter of accounting. You can say that you have a poker bankroll, but in truth, what you have is an imaginary wall between some of your money and the rest of your money.

Behind your main wall of bankroll, there are two other more complex as you build and you walls man work. There are money you high and that you put on the table to bet. It s is a bankroll. Then there are all the other funds which are immediately available when you play as money you have in your pockets, or in the pockets of your neighbor. No matter where it is located, if this money is not on the table, but any other place to which you can access without leaving your seat, it s is an another bankroll. Thus, put together, you have three different bankroll when you play. You can lose money l in the table, lost l money from your pocket or lose all your money.

Let me ask you a question. Do you play at your best when you're short of money?

For my part, the answer is no. Least I am concerned about my money, the best I play. I think that c is the same thing for my opponents. Then, all I have to do, c is to divide my money d a better way which they divide to make profits. Reciprocity.
