  1. Noun

    A player's location in the sequence of actions. Typically in relation to the dealer, who acts last, but sometimes applied in relation to the blinds or to another particular player. Position is based on features of game play, such as how the button is passed from one player to another, rather than physical location at the table.

    EXAMPLE: "I am in the fourth position, and none of the three players who went before me raised."

    A seat in late position.
