UTG+1

Definition of UTG+1

The player in the UTG+1 position is the player who speaks immediately after the player in the UTG position (under the gun). On an shorthanded 6-max table, the UTG+1 player will also be named player hijack. The player in the UTG+1 position will have to be as careful as the player in the UTG position and play a fairly tight hand range. Some shorthanded tables will sometimes have 5 players. On such a table, the player in the UTG+1 position will be named player cutoff.

UTG, UTG+1 and UTG+2

If you play on a table of shorthanded, there will be a big difference between the UTG, UTG+1 and UTG+2 positions. The player in the UTG+2 position will be able to afford to open many more hands than the player in the UTG position, but when you are in a casino at a 10-player table, there will not be much difference between the range of hands you can open from the UTG, UTG+1 and UTG+2 positions. You will have to play them in much the same way. From these positions you will have to play fairly tight.
