I’ve been playing online poker for 8 years now and I have never seen the industry in as bad of shape as it is today. It is beginning to feel like online poker is dying. Online poker volumes have declined significantly in the past year. Anecdotally, I can also tell you that it appears the last 3 months have been especially bad. It seems that online poker fell off the cliff this summer and has failed to recover. The industry faces major challenges and I want to talk about some possible solutions.
You may have heard the poker term ‘relative position’ being banded around, but it’s not a well documented subject. Let’s change that! We all know about the powers of playing with initiative in position with clear cbet success rates and the perils of playing out of position especially when defending the blinds. But always considering how your relative position affects the hand can really help you take advantage of some common poker leaks in your opponents.
