Mississippi Straddle

word type: noun

  1. A form of the Straddle, but instead of being placed from "under the gun," as with a typical straddle, a Mississippi Straddle may be made from any position at the table.

How it Works

The player to the left of the Mississippi Straddle opens the action preflop. So if the button straddles using the "Mississippi" rules, the small blind acts first preflop. As with a typical live straddle, the player who puts out the blind bet has the last option to raise preflop.
