What is Big Blind in Poker Terms?

In poker, the ‘big blind’ is a mandatory bet posted by the player seated to the left of the small blind before each hand is dealt.

The big blind amount is typically twice the size of the small blind and is a forced bet designed to ensure there is some money in the pot to create action.

The big blind rotates around the table with the dealer button, ensuring that every player takes turns posting the big blind as the dealer position moves from player to player.
