card or Raise, one the basis of the strength of
his cards in hand.

High Jack is known as Cut-off. This position is
the best position on the poker table. This is the
best position because he is the last one to act
and he can act according to the strategy of every
player. This Player knows about every players
move and what theyre doing in the round.

the Poker Table because he knows about each and
every players move.
