What is Complete?
Complete → 1. (In games with a Button) – Complete is a call made in the SB (small-blind) to match the full amount of the big-blind payment. (Also referred to colloquially as a “SB limp”.)
Example usage → “It was folded around to me in the SB so I completed”
Complete → 2. (In Stud games) – Complete is a player first to act on third street gets the option to either “bring-in” (make a small bet) or “complete” (make the largest allowed bet).
Example usage → “I had a split pair on third so I completed”
Although limping is discouraged in NLHE by most strategy resources, SB completing should play an integral part of a good player’s strategy. It is especially useful for increasing the number of hands we play against weaker players at the table.
