Definition of cut-off

The cutoff is the name of one of the 10 positions on a poker table. The cutoff is between the hijack and the button. The cutoff is an excellent position because after the flop, if the button is not in the hand, it will be the last to speak on every street. The cutoff also has the advantage of being less prominent than the button. For example, even novice players know that the button position is going to be very aggressive. Since it is in position over everyone else, the button tends to steal a lot of blinds and bluff more often. On the other hand, the more attentive players may not let this happen and counter-attack because they are against the button. But with the cutoff position, you go a little more under the radar.

The cutoff, a less prominent button

When you are on the cutoff, you are less suspicious than if you are in the button seat, which will allow you to play the same role as the button when it is not in the hand without wearing the aggressive "blind stealer" label that the button carries. The cutoff is one of the positions where we will make the most money in poker. Therefore, you need to open your range more than in other positions. Just being in position most of the time will make you money.
