One of the first terms you hear bandied about at the poker table is "position" -- as in "I've got position on you," or "I hate getting this hand in early position."

Position in poker refers to where a player sits in reference other players. If someone says "I've got position on you" -- it means he's sitting to your left, and will always act after you.
