All seats on a poker table are defined taking as starting point the position of the “dealer”. The player to start a game is that on the dealer’s left (small blind), followed by the one on his immediate left (big blind), and then all the others. These players hold the initial positions. Those sitting right in front of the dealer are said to be holding intermediate positions and then come the late positions which are located to the dealer’s right.
