I must confess that I’ve been enjoying the series, though I didn’t see the first season. One thing I can never get from watching is the role of the “blinds.” I know they get bigger for some reason. (They seem to get so big that the game becomes a coin toss in the end.) Can someone please explain in some detail how the rules governing them work? Plus, do the players ante (sp?) up, or do the blinds function that role as well?
