We had a "Triple Straddle" the other night, folk getting desperate.
SB - 25 pts
BB - 50 pts
UTG - Straddles to 100 pts
+1 - Double Straddles to 150 pts
+2 - Treble Straddles to 200 pts.
Bearing in mind when you buy-in or top-up you only get 500 pts, these three just had a fresh top-up so you know that the full 500 pts are going in somewhere!
I hate this play, you look down at AA and know your gonna be up against at least 3 others, makes it hard for any hand to hold up.
