I have been reading this book "52 Tips for Texas
Hold'em", and in its universal "Tip 5" - "Your position is of vital importance in deciding whether to open the pot".
Now this is where I don't get it:
"Very few hands should be played from early position, which can be classified as the first three
seats in a 10-handed game". What first 3, to the left of the Dealer or to the left of the Big Blind? I did a bit of searching and couldn't find a consistent definition of what first, second and third seats are, nor the exact definition of "early position" (does "early position" include Small and Big Blinds?).
If the author of the book refers to the first 3 seats to the left of the big blind, do I take the specific advice for early position play for Small and Big Blind positions also?
