2. What does PTL stand for?

Player to left

Online card game and board game players use PTL to mean "player to the left." You're most likely to see this acronym used while discussing online poker, to refer to the player seated to a player's immediate left.

However, other online games also care about the order players are seated in, so you may see PTL used while discussing those games. For example, if an MTG streamer is in the middle of a draft, commenters may speculate about what the PTL and PTR are drafting and how it is influencing the streamer's draft.


My PTL is betting really aggressively this game.
