ok im verry curious to no, position means to be able to act second to another player meaning you have full advantage to see there expresions and betting before you make your move but would but could'nt position also be achieved by betting small on someone who has position over you?

for example your playing heads up and your opponant has position over you no bets pre flop you bet min on the flop if he just calls could that be just as good as a check if he was first to act on the flop?

im half asleep and my mind is going a mile a min please let me no if this question needs to be refraised cuz im verry curious about how to play in cirtain positions

I'm not sure I know quite what you are asking, but I will try to answer.

Just because he only called a min bet on the flop (with position), doesn't necessarily mean he would have checked the flop if out of position. His range of hands is still quite wide, he could be slowplaying the nuts, or have a weak draw/pair.

Generally, a call (even of a min bet) in position shows quite a bit more strength than checking from out of position.
