The last person to act
on any particular betting round is said to have position
on everyone else, or to be In Position
. This means that he is able
to see the action
of every player before him prior to deciding his action
, which is typically a huge advantage.
Additionally, to have "position
" on someone means that you are on his left, such that you act
after him on most hands. Exceptions occur when one player is in the blinds where position
typically reverses for a hand.
Example: After flopping a weak pair, I found out that it was much easier to control the size of the pot when I was IP.
