Straddle- When a player decides to straddle, they are putting in twice the big blind before the cards are dealt.
A straddle is an optional blind bet made by a player after the posting of the small and big blinds, but before cards are dealt. Straddles are usually used only in cash games played with fixed blind structures.
"Run It Twice" is when the remaining board cards dealt twice once everyone is all-in. The pot is split in two and awarded for each board separately.
If any of the players do not have "Run it Twice" activated, the board will run out normally (once only).
We do not charge extra rake for "Run It Twice" hands.
An ante is a small mandatory bet made by all players, prior to the initial deal.
