A forced bet posted by the player directly to the left of the dealer button
, which is usually less than the forced bet of the player to the small blind
's left (the big blind
). The small blind
acts next-to-last before the flop
and first in all subsequent betting rounds.
Example: Hero is in the small blind at a 8/16 limit table. He is required to post $4, half the big blind, and has the option of "completing" that bet with another $4 when he acts next to last if nobody has raised the pot.
