Reading What I did was right? I see reference to Hijack, Cut-Off, and Villain. I assume these are positions? Which positions?

    It's a valid question but has already had numerous answers dedicated to it. Check the link I referenced. Also, before asking a question, use the search function (Top of page, I suggest "Position" or something similar for this one). You'll usually find what you're looking for :)

The Hijack is one place before the cut off.

The cut off is one place before the dealer button

Villain is not a position at all. It refers to the person that you are playing against. You are the Hero and they are the villian.
