Poker Blinds...

Poker question:

In hold'em, how do you handle it when a person gets knocked out that was supposed to be one of the blinds? This has happened to us at least 5 times in our regular game and we can never figure out the correct way to do it. I've scoured the interweb for info on it, but found nothing (I was really surprised)...

Can someone help me out???

Hey Shane, this is Brian, Mike D's brother. Our home game has the same problem a lot of time. We really need to write this stuff down. I got this info from http://homepokertourney.com

If the big blind busts out and is not replaced by a player from another table, the button moves to the player who posted the small blind and the player to the left of the former big blind assumes the big blind. There is no small blind for that hand. On the following deal, the button moves to the now empty seat (the seat vacated by the eliminated big blind player) and the two players to the left post the normal blinds. This will result in the same player being the dealer two hands in a row.

When the small blind busts out and is not replaced by a player from another table, the button does not move. The player who was the big blind will now post the small blind and the player to his left will post the big blind. This will result in the same player being the dealer two hands in a row.
