Big Blind special

Poker Glossary

The big blind special is a term referring to when the big blind wins a hand with a very bad starting hand because he saw the flop for free. When nobody raises the big blind, the big blind is able to see the flop without having to call a bet. Since the big blind's hand is random, he'll often have a realy bad hand like 38 offsuit. This player sometimes ends up winning the hand by hitting a lucky flop. For example, the big blind has 7s2h and everyone else limps in. The flop is 7d7h2c, giving him a full house, and almost certainly the best hand.
