Definition of big blind
Knowing the size of the big blind in a poker game is essential. Most cash game tables will allow you to buy in with a minimum of 20 big blinds and a maximum of 100 big blinds. In other words, if the big blind is €10, you will be able to enter the table with a maximum stack of €1,000 and you will have to buy in with a minimum of €200. The size of the big blind is the basic unit for determining everything else (stacks, bets, raises, etc).
