Playing From the Big Blind - Kyle Fischl Poker Vlog Ep 48.
In heads-up online poker, you have a small and a big blind, which switches person each new hand. If you are the small blind, you are first to act pre-flop. Normally you either open or fold. You open a big % of your hands and some really bad hands you fold. If the small blind raises, the big blind has to make a decision.
If you’re going to play a hand, raise three to four times the big blind (five times if someone’s already raised). Hopefully this will win you the blinds. If not, you’ve got the momentum you need to continuation bet, which should always be the next step in your plan. Playing from the blinds.
A big blind is a mandatory bet used in poker variations that typically don't have antes, such as Texas Hold 'Em. It is paid by the player two seats to the left of the dealer or the dealer button. The player one seat to the left of the button pays a small blind that is usually half the big blind's size.
In 2019, the level is 60,000-120,000 with a 120,000 big blind ante for 300,000 in the pot to start each hand. More Chips Plus Big Blind Ante Means More Play In conclusion, the larger size of the starting stack and the way the big blind ante format works with the structure will allow for a deeper, slower structure in 2019 compared to 2018 in the WSOP Main Event.
Well, in The Poker Lab, we recommend open-raising a slightly wider range from the small blind than the button (anywhere between 40% and 50% of hands is a good starting point).
As I’ve explained, playing from the big blind is the best and most common example of facing a continuation bet OOP. When you’re seated in the big blind and the button opens, you’re supposed to defend with a wide range of poker hands.
