Straddle

A straddle is a blind raise made before the cards are dealt which is usually double the size of the big blind. When the preflop action reaches the straddler and there has not been a raise, that player is given the option to raise. When describing a hand, a player making a straddle bet is sometimes referred to as “the straddle.”
