Big Bet (pt BB)

Big Bet (pt BB)

Big Bet is a term derived from Limit holdem, where there are two bet sizes - the big blind pre-flop and on the flop, and 2xthe big blind on the turn and river. Hence a big bet is 2x the big blind.<br><br>

This term is often used by people when describing win-rates, as an early poker database program (poker tracker) measured winrates in big bets/100 hands. <br><br>

People now often use the abbreviation ptBB/100 to describe winrates - as in poker tracker big bets/100 hands.

Example: Wow, I'm crushing 25nl. I'm running 8ptBB/100 over 40k hands. Time to move up.
