So I'm playing 1/3 at a must move game on a fairly sleepy Friday night. The table is a must move. Suddenly a boisterous, inebriated heavy-set guy sits down and sloppily adds his max buy in to the table. His stacks fall over. He has a tangled mess of $100 bills and black $100 chips probably from blackjack. On the first hand, I raise 11 from UTG. He min raises to 20. One guy folds, the button calls. The big blind calls, I 4-bet to 105, new guy calls. button shoves for 120, Asian girl in the small blind shoves for 160. My last 95 goes in on the flop of QcTc9c and drunky calls. He ends up stacking everyone with T7o. Then the must move clears the table. Drunky still wants to play and the Asian girl who just got stacked from the small blind convinces the floor to open a 2/5 game. I abandon my new 1/3 table to get in the new game.
Conventional wisdom says that you want the bad spewy players on your right so you always have position on him and since most money flows clockwise. However, I chose the seat on HIS right. Here's my reasoning - if Drunky McBlufferson is true to type, he will be raising 8-15x pre-flop, betting ridiculous amounts blind before the cards are dealt, etc, and most of the table will be limping, trapping, and generally letting Drunky take the lead. Since most poker players are trained to check to the raiser, being on his left will effectively make me out of position against everyone else, while being on his right will give me relative position on the entire table. Thoughts?
