    What the first guy said. You can get easier reads on your opponents if the dealer button is in front of you and it can make or save you in chips. If you think your opponent is bluffing, raise; if you think your opponent has a big hand, fold. It's obviously a bit more complicated than that, but that's the abridged version.

    basically the earlier you are to act the better your hand has to be in order to play. If you're first to act after the big blind at a 9 person table you should fold everything except AA KK & AK & maybe QQ. on the other hand if all 6 players before you fold and you are in the dealer position, you may consider raising with a hand like A4 or even A2 if you feel you have the best hand.
