3 blinds in before the cards are dealt?
I've been meaning to ask the question for awhile, because I've never heard of it before.
The way that I've been playing online, at the casino, and at Side Pockets, is when a player who was in the BB gets eliminated that hand, then the following hand, there would just be one BB and no SB, right? I just want to clarify that that is what it's suppose to be. Is there another way to do it? Or is this just stupid? ----
On Monday nights, I go to another bar to play poker, because the bar puts in $2 per person for the winner to take home (ex. if 40 people are in the tourney, the winner would take home $80).
Well, what they do, is when a player is eliminated on the BB, the following hand would have two BB's.. the next two people would both have to post their BB's, and then the hand after that, It would be Small, Small, Big... with two posting SB's, and one posting the BB... the following hand would then go back to normal, but a player would be skipped being on the button. This is the only place that I have heard ever doing this. When I asked a couple of people in the tourney about this, and the person who runs the tournament, they said, "Oh, it's standard rules, they do it at the casinos
," and then I explain to them that Harrah's at least does not, and they just brush it off. To me, I think the way they do it is dumb.. but whatever.
Can anyone tell me if this is really standard or if it's not, has anyone else played like this before?
