Holdem Question

Postby Sherman Tang » Fri Aug 20, 2010 10:13 am

Hi everyone,

I stumbled on some poker meet up sites and there are NL 2/2 game. What is 2/2? SB and BB? If so, why are the blinds the same?

Some hosts like to have a game going each round instead of the small blind folding to the big blind.

By increasing the SB (small blind) to the BB (Big Blind) you ensure that there will be at least 2 players playing that hand (aka both checked).

Haha, Sherman you sure you new to the game bo....

on top of what support said, 2/2 makes it less intimidating than "2/4" imo, just like 1/1 is less intimidating than 1/2 (though at the end of the day it might just end up being played the same way, who knows?)

but SB and BB checking definitely encourages more action, though a raise in front may still result in the same outcome la
