re: Poker & Thoughts on Transitioning from SnG to Ring
Position is important in all facets of the game, so to determine if it is more important in cash is somewhat like picking at straws.
However, I would say that position is more of a necessity in cash games. As mentioned above, the blinds vs. stack pressure is not a factor. Therefore, there is a lot of post-flop play. All-ins are much less prevalent. With more post-flop play, there is more opportunity to use position to your advantage. When you get a good feel for betting patterns, position is a huge advantage, especially when taking down a lot of small pots.
