In position

A player is in position when they are the last person to act once we get to the flop. If UTG+1 calls the raise of the button and we see a flop the player on the button is in position in the hand. The player in position has a significant advantage in the hand since they will know what their opponent does on the betting street first, i.e. check or bet. This will give them some insight into the strength of their opponent’s hand and they can react accordingly, i.e. check, call, raise, or fold.
