What is Big Blind Special in Poker?

« View All Poker Terms

The term “Big Blind Special” refers to when the player in the big blind wins a pot or makes a strong hand with a hand they likely wouldn’t have played in any other position. A big blind special usually occurs because the player in the big blind was able to see the flop for free.

For example, suppose 3 players limp and you check in the big blind with 4-2 offsuit. If the flop comes 4-4-2, you are said to have a big blind special.
