UTG is short for “Under the Gun.” It refers to being the first person to act; being in the earliest position in a given round; in the first betting round of a blind game, the player just left of the big blind is “under the gun.” The UTG player is first to act before the flop and will quite often have a junk position after the flop, making it a difficult position to play in Texas Hold’em.
