Texas Holdem Poker Strategy: Playing The Blinds

The blinds in Texas hold’em are positions that oblige the player to place a bet before getting to see the cards. A blind is often thought of an imposed pre-flop bid, because it is made before getting your cards. You don’t have a choice when in this position and you will have to bet the amount the game imposed for the respective blind. Texas hold’em has blinds because they bring along with them a little more action, even if it is forced. Without having the blinds, it is highly probable that players would simply sit around the table all day and fold every time in pre-flop just because they didn’t get their pocket aces. The initial idea for the blind was to force everyone pay to see their cards and then the whole game would evolve around the battle for that blind money. But today, the blind evolved and in real or online casino, especially in limit games blinds became very popular. They are often referred to the small and the big blind and they are the players placed to the left of the dealer button. So at table it is first the dealer button (or that player that is in dealer position for that game), the small blind and then the big blind.
