Playing Buttons and Blinds Poker Games at the Casinos
In the button games, the dealing of the cards is done by a non-playing dealer. There is a round disk in the game that is used to indicate among the players who has the position of the dealer. Any of the players with the button is the one supposed to receive the cards as the last on the initial stage of dealing and also have the right for the last action in the game at the end of the first betting round.
There is one or more blind poker bets that are normally used in the game to trigger the gambling activity and thus cause the game play to be initiated at the gambling site. In the game the blinds are always part of the bets or else otherwise the structure of the game or the circumstances demands that part or the whole blinds to be dead. Dead blinds are not part of the bets made by the player.
When there are two blinds in the game then one of them which is a small blind is being posted by the player in a clockwise direction and the second blind which is a big blind is posted by another second player in the clockwise direction. When there are more than two blinds then the smaller blind is normally placed on the right of the button. The game is started by the player who is on the left hand side of the blinds.
