Help me understand positions
I haven't started playing poker yet, I'm the kind to learn theory before practice (which makes sense because you don't want to fall into the trap of playing based on short term results). I am new to this so sorry to sound stupid.
anyway my question. these are the positions in a 6 seated table of texas
utg (under the gun)
utg+1 (under the gun plus 1)
co (cut off)
sb (small blind)
bb (big blind)
now I understand after the flop it becomes
and here lies the confusion... I'm looking at different ranges but get confused about what position they are talking about.
for example here is one range
UTG and UTG+1 AKos, AQs, JJ+
CO AJs, KQs, AQos, 99+
BU ATs, KQs, AJos, KQos, 77+
now, how would you apply this considering they have missed two positions. In other words where would the SB and BB fit in?
Is SB and BB grouped with the BU range because they are last to bet preflop? or
do you group those positions with UTG because they are first after flop? or
do you play them as BU range preflop then UTG post flop?
basically. where does SB and BB fit in and how would you play them with this range strategy?
and any additional information you have on how to play position and what exactly position means would be very welcome, thanks guys.
