What is the difference between a Straddle and a No-Look All-In?

What is the difference between a Straddle and a No-Look All-In?

  • To use the image below as an example, Player A (at a $5/$10 table) posted the first Straddle by posting $20, which was double the big blind of $10.
  • Player B then followed by posting a Straddle of $40. 
  • Player C, however, decided to No-Look All-In for $210.
  • The next Straddle amount that a player will be able to post is not $80, but rather $320, which is the next closest Straddle amount larger than the all-in of $210 posted by the previous bidder.
  • Please remember that a Straddle or No-Look All-In is only available pre-flop before your hands are dealt.
