We are proud to introduce Big Blind ante to our preflop simulations – the first of its kind in the market! This feature enables you to replicate live game conditions more accurately than ever before. Have a look and discover all the available scenarios.

What is BB Ante?

Big Blind Ante (BBA) is relatively recent change to how antes are posted in tournament poker. Traditionally, each player at the table would contribute an ante every hand. However, with the Big Blind Ante format, instead of each player posting an ante each hand, the responsibility falls on the player in the Big Blind position.

This player posts an amount equal to the Big Blind, which serves as the ante for the entire table. The purpose of this change is primarily to speed up the game. It simplifies the process of collecting antes and ensures that the number of hands dealt per level increases, leading to a more efficient and enjoyable game.
