Grosse blind

Definition of grosse blind

In a classic game of poker, the two forced bets that two players must place in each hand, without even receiving their cards, are called petite blind and grosse blind respectively. The grosse blind (big blind) is usually twice as high as the petite blind. In some games of cash games, there are petites blinds to 2 and grosses blinds to 5 (2/5). However, this is not the norm. When you open your online poker room and see the list of available tables, the size of the blinds is usually indicated as follows: 5/10. Here you will know that petite blind is 5 and grosse blind is 10.

Knowing the size of the grosse blind in a poker game is essential. Most cash games tables will allow you to buy a minimum of 20 grosses blindss and a maximum of 100 grosses blindss. In other words, if the grosse blind is 10 euros, you will be able to enter the table with a maximum stack of 1000 euros and you will have to buy minus a minimum of 200 euros. The size of the grosse blind is the basic unit for determining everything else (carpets, bets, raises, etc).
