A straddle is an extra blind bet that is posted before you get your cards.

This mission is so simple. Select holdem, select your desired stake, buy-in and hit straddle in the bottom left hand corner. Uncheck the “Wait for Blinds” button. The straddle is automatically applied at two times the big blind. If you click the green straddle in the pop-up, you double the size of the straddle again, like I did.

There is almost zero difficulty in this mission, it took less than a minute. We lost 1c because we played the next hand and got most of our straddle back.

Hi! I'm Barry Craig, and my mission is to help you finish your Honeymoon Mission. You can find me online using the handle "4 Card Magic". I've been a poker player for over 20 years. Playing in the World Series of Poker was always my dream, and I did that 3 times. I was the first ever Northern Ireland Poker Champion, with my biggest live tournament cash of £50,000. I have had many five figure online cashes, with my biggest $60,000 without ever playing in high-roller events. I only ever played in a handful of live tournaments and tended to be fortunate.

    One of my missions wasn’t awarded immediately but you should contact support to make sure that this is the case for you

Me too like Jadar.
Was bit more lucky I made a quad and got a bonus!
Of course I did contact the support and send a hand of the straddle set!
Still no answer 17h to run before the end of the mission.
I let U know what’s going on

    Barry Craig · January 31, 2021 at 7:02 am

    Thanks, Nick. Yes please do and let everyone know, cheers!

      Just an update.
      Support asked me to provide a screenshot of the honeymoon screen and pokercraft.
      After seeing no straddle from me was traced, I played 1 more hands and made the screenshot.
      Support told me pb was on honeymoon and the soft went on maintenance for some hours.
      Next day the mission was completed!
      Craig do you run a forum or a discord to speak about poker, strategy…
      Good luck on table

        Barry Craig · February 5, 2021 at 4:38 am

        Thanks for the update Nick! Yes on Sunday 31/01 they had a problem which was fixed during maintenance on Monday 01/02.

Hi Barry

Just discovered your mission guide. Really appreciate it. So far so good although I kind of hate all in or fold.

Do you have other content we should check out?

All the best

    If you ignore the bonus card in AoF it’s not bad. I would also ignore most medium and small suited connectors, at least until Day 30, lol.
