Since making a smaller bet gives our opponents better pot odds, we should only make these wee wagers when you know for sure your opponent is NOT going to get the better of a draw and you also know that your opponent will not call a large bet.
Being able to know how to play drawing hands and accurately read your opponent is a skill that comes with many, many, MANY rounds at the tables. For the most part, however, it's best go big or go home. The Perks of Living Large Bet sizing big has its undeniable benefits, like giving us an information advantage we can test the mettle of our opponents' hands and learn valuable information about how they play when put under pressure and, as mentioned, we also get more value from each bet.
While concepts like table image, player type, odds and value betting may not seem that titillating, understanding them thoroughly and utilizing them correctly results in big, beautiful bankrolls - which is about the most attractive thing we can think of, in our books at least.

Unlike position, relative position is only a consideration in certain circumstances, most notably when a pre-flop raiser makes a continuation bet. When we are referring to standard poker position, being the last person to act is most advantageous because it gives us an information advantage, allowing us to see how other players are going to act before we have to make our move.
When it comes to relative position, your actual position at the table is not as important as your position in relation to the pre-flop raiser - and it's better to be the player to the immediate right of the pre-flop raiser than it is to be the player to the left.
To realize the importance of relative position, it's first important to look at actual position and how it drives the action. So, for example, if Player 1 bets, and Player 2 folds and Player 3 calls, it's Player 3 who closes out of the action. Player 3 is last to act and has the 'information advantage' since he gets to see how all the other players are going to play their hands, and therefore can glean from their actions the merits of their hands.
However, if we look at how the same situation plays out if Player 2 were to bet, we encounter the implications of relative position. Player 1 checks, Player 2 bets restarting the cycle , Player 3 calls and then it falls to Player 1 to act again. As such, Player 1 closes the action and is last to act in relative position even though Player 3 is in the actual last position. Sometimes, this won't be a big deal. After all, assuming we are Player 3, we still get to observe the actions of our opponents before it's our turn.
This won't always be the case though. As mentioned, continuation bets - and by extension, pre-flop raises - make considering relative position crucial. Note : In situations where the pot is very multi-way, pre-flop raises will often be less inclined to c-bet and thus relative position becomes less important. A pre-flop raiser will often make a continuation bet on the flop in the event they are first to act or if the other players check ahead of them.
Many players will expect the player who raises pre-flop to make a c-bet, and will therefore check to them.
