      Quote from first FL basic article

      WHEN PLAYERS LEAVE THE TABLE

      What if a player leaves the table? When this happens, the first early position simply drops out. Thus there are only two early positions instead of three. If another player leaves the table, only one early position remains

      One way to help u determine your position is to count from the button;

      so u have button + cutoff those are the 2 late positions , then u can count in groups - next 3 are the middle and last 3 are the early positions so that way u can quickly see what is ur position.

      But other than that just play alot of hands :)

      Yeah i read that, prob. should have been a bit clearer i guess. What i'm really wondering about is if more than 2 players leave. Do i just play without early positions, or do i start taking away middle ones? Or do i just leave as well -.-
      Thanks for ur quick response dude, appreciated

      I think its pretty clear but ok here we go :)

      First player leaves u take 1 first position out, 2 players leave u take 2 early positions out (u only got 1 early position and then middle and so on), if 3 players leave u dont have no early position anymore so the first player to act is in the middle position then.

      So remember if 3 players leave u got only middle and late position(10 player table), that means u first remove early positions and then middle if more then 3 leave.

      I cant make it clearer than that so i hope u understand :)

      hi All sry for bump old post but i got something not quite clear regarding positions...:P
      that is let say this one
      What if a player leaves the table? When this happens, the first early position simply drops out. Thus there are only two early positions instead of three. If another player leaves the table, only one early position remains
      never are mentioned blinds, what happened with them??? What if blinds leave i mean must there be always 2 blinds on tables???? If one players left then we take out 1 early position thats ok but what if the one that left is blind????Will there will be someone to replace the blind like 1st early to be blind and there will be 2 early insted three or what??
      Or in short lets say there are 5 players playing there will be 2late 2 blinds and 1 mid positions???
      ill looking for replay thanks
