Driver's Seat

A player in the "Driving Seat" is the one taking the initiative in all the betting

Usage: "I'll check to you; you're in the driver's seat" implies that it is after the draw in a draw game, or in a late round in a stud or hold 'em game, and the person being checked to had bet large in a no-limit game, raised earlier, or bet every preceding round.
