Position definition

The position at the poker table is the seat we occupy. With each new hand, we change position. There are two types of position: in position and out of position. A player who is "in position" is a player who speaks after everyone else after the flop. A player "out of position" is any player who does not talk last on the flop. Even though some positions called "out of position" are better than others, we will still call them "out of position" positions.

The different positions on a poker table

The most numerous tables in poker have 10 seats. The button is the indicator of the positions. It is from the position of the button that the other positions can be determined. For example, the player who has the button is also called the dealer, brewer or croupier. He is the player with the best position at the table. The two players to his left will be the blinds. His immediate left is the small blind and to the left of the small blind is the big blind. To the left of the big blind is the position called Under The Gun. This is the first position to speak preflop. After UTG, we have Under The Gun + 1, Middle Position 1, Middle Postion 2, Lowjack, Hijack, Cutoff and then dealer, to complete the loop.
