Sitting out, three players, blinds
I have a question regarding sitting out when there are three players in a blinds game - e.g. Texas
Player1, Player2, Player3 are in a hand. Player1 is the dealer, Player2 posts the small blind and Player3 sits out.
Because Player 3 sits out, Player1 posts the big blind. Now the hand is completed with only 2 players Player1 and Player2.
After this hand is completed, the next hand starts. Player3 is still sitting out. Player2 is the dealer. Since it's 2 players, Player2 posts the small blind again and Player1 the big blind.
Player1 posts the big blinds twice in a row. Is this normal? Also, is it more advantageous strategically being in the big blind position or the small blind position?
Cheers - thanks for any help!
