Mississippi Straddle

The Mississippi Straddle is a type of straddle. Contrary to a traditional straddle, which is committed by the player under the gun and, in some cases, subsequent players behind the under the gun player, the Mississippi Straddle may be made from any position on the table outside of the blinds. When a Mississippi Straddle is in place, the player left of the straddler starts the action. When the button puts out a Mississippi Straddle, the small blind acts first. As is the case with a traditional straddle, the Mississippi Straddle is live and is not considered a blind raise.


Mississippi Straddle is on people! Hey George, since you're on my left, you're to act first now.
