Texas Holdem is all about people and seating. All rounded Texas Hold'em players concur that position in no cutoff Hold'em is critically important. Playing your hole cards in late spot may be much more beneficial than in early poker spot. This is because a whole lot more info is gathered right before acting.

i.e., I played in a $1-$2 no limit cash match at a local poker room. I bumbled in with 2, 9 unsuited on the croupier marker, so I could partake in some excitement. Flop came down A-A-4. A person in starting spot laid a fifteen dollar wager. 2 entrants fold and it was my turn. I should have folded, but his action appear to be a tiny bit off. I read this person as a weak-tight player, and usually if he held the strongest hand he would simply check, so I called.

The turn showed with a 7, making it A-A-4-7. My opponent made a further wager of $20. I hesitated for a while, but took a chance to re-raise a further $30thirty dollars on top of his $20. He folds and I take the chips.

Wagering at last position gives you an insight into where you stand by observing how other players react and wager. On the other hand, gamblers at early position could use their poker spot to check-raise the late seated competitors and corner them afterwords at the end. In Texas Hold'em, both ends, late and starting must be bet cautiously.
