This is a discussion on New 6 Max seat names or Being Woke! within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Recently I was reminded how old school the seat names in poker are.
UTG -Under the Gun: Not the imagery new young woke poker players
Don't get so worried about a table position names. There is plenty of other stuff to worry about. Can you explain how being "woke" has anything to do with poker? Just a little curious
Thank U 4 Responding.
UTG Under the Gun. HJ Hijack all names connected to violence.
Being woke refers to the new culture of rejecting the older cultures acceptance of using violence based references and other negative language. So a reference to having a gun pointed at you meaning first to act in poker is not the imagery a "woke" person would want to reflect.
My use of this is humorous in intent but has an element of truth to it as most good comedy bits do.
It is interesting that you would think I was worried about table names. After all I did call the first position instagram which I thought was a very obvious indicator as to the humor of the post.
