      Definition: In a live game, when a player decides to 'straddle', he is putting in twice the big blind before the cards are dealt. Usually, it is the player under the gun who straddles. Essentially, it is a raise in the dark, as all players following must now call or raise the amount of the straddle bet. This is usually done so a player can leave the table but return to play his cards, or as a way to generate more action.
