Level 4: Blinds 100/200/200 BB Ante
Antes have now kicked in, so the player in the big blind will post 200 for the blind and another 200 for the table’s antes (the BB Ante is always the same amount as the Big Blind, regardless of the number of players at the table). This “Big Blind Ante” was implemented for the first time at Borgata in this event and players got their first taste of this new method in Fight A yesterday.
Once players got used to the change, it was a big hit. Since the dealer doesn’t have to sort out who has posted and who hasn’t, collect all the antes, and make change where necessary, they can move from hand to hand much quicker.
If the player in the big blind doesn’t have enough chips to cover both the big blind and BB ante, his/her chips go toward the Big Blind first, then any chips left go toward the BB Ante.
