Early Position

Fortune Jack Poker

Defined as players sitting on the 3 seats to the left of the dealer. The 2 players to the left of the dealer also have to bet without knowing their hole cards since they are the blinds. The player on the left of the blinds is said to be "under the gun".

This is the worst position in poker as players in this position are the first to act in the betting round.

Having to act without knowing how any of the other players played their hands, players in this position should play tighter.

You also run the risk of losing your bet when you are forced to fold after a highly aggressive raise by another player. If you are in a later position than that player, you would have folded and not have to waste that $10.
