Blind Steal

In a game with blinds as forced bets like Texas Hold'em, a blindsteal is a raise with a weak hand from a late position when all other players have folded. An attack on the blinds, or an attack by the small blind on the big blind, is done with the idea that the blinds will fold, leaving the thief with the blinds without having to fight for them.

The strategic counterpart of the blindsteal is the blind defense, where the blinds are defended with a weak hand against such a blind steal attempt.
