big blind (plural big blinds)

  1. (poker) The larger of the forced bets, usually equivalent to the minimum bet.
    The blinds are: $1/$2. (small blind: $1, big blind: $2)
    I have 10 big blinds in my stack. (big blind = $5, so I have $50 in my stack)
  2. (poker) The player forced to pay such a bet.
    If I raise, maybe the big blind will fold.
