UTG+2

Definition of UTG+2

The player in position UTG+2 is the player who speaks immediately after the player in position UTG+1. On a shorthanded 6-max table, the player UTG+2 will also be named the player cutoff. The player in the UTG+2 position will have to be as careful as the player in the UTG position and play a fairly tight hand range. Some tables shorthanded will sometimes have 5 players. On such a table, the player in the UTG+2 position will be called the button.

UTG, UTG+1 and UTG+2

If you play on a shorthanded table, 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 on 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.
