Big Blind Special

Big blind special is a term that refers to situations where the player sitting in the big blind wins a hand despite holding poor cards. This usually occurs when no one raises before the flop, allowing the big blind to see the flop with a hand that they would have normally folded had the pot been raised.

EXAMPLE “Having AA beat by 72 really hurts even if it was a big blind special.”

EXAMPLE “I got to see a cheap flop with 52 and flopped the nut straight it was a big blind special.”
