1) To be ahead
in a hand is to be currently winning the hand.
2) The player to act ahead
of you sits on your right and acts first.
Example: 1) I flopped a set of aces and was definitely ahead in the hand. However, there was a flush draw on the board and my opponent could have easily caught up.
2) I had a fish acting ahead of me all night. Needless to say, I had a great session.
