A forced bet posted by the player directly to the left of the dealer button, which is usually less than the forced bet of the player to the small blind’s left (the big blind). The small blind acts next-to-last before the flop and first in all subsequent betting rounds.


Hero is in the small blind at a 8/16 limit table. He is required to post $4, half the big blind, and has the option of "completing" that bet with another $4 when he acts next to last if nobody has raised the pot.
