re: Poker & Pick a Seat
I prefer to seat loose players to my right and the tighter players to my left.
If I take seat A, then to my left I have 100,100, 65, and 40. And to my right, I have 100, 100, 20, and 25.
The 65 and 40 might be playing tighter since they are down, but not out. But the 20 and 25 might be willing to put all in from thinking it's now or never. At least from the left of 20 and 25 I have position advantage and can play the table as a result. Starting from this position will also increase my chance to correctly apply implied pot odds
on hands I can see them play, especially if they play in the same hand.
