I've come across this term a few times recently (in relation to poker) - can anyone tell me what it means?
The rules may be different in the US, but in the Sydney casino the UTG straddler does not get to bet last preflop (as the definition suggests) as the straddle is his bet, and if it is not raised he cannot bet again.
A 'straddle' is a live bet, where they DO get the option of acting last preflop. Anything else is simply a min raise in the dark, even if it's called a 'straddle' incorrectly.
Is this the distinction made between being able to act last and not being able?
