Blinds are the essence of poker games. All strategy is built on the basis of stealing the money that are already in the pot (Dead money). Without the blinds, a player can fold every hand but Aces, thus (in the long term) would never lose money. Now, there are different setups to achieve that, like big and small blinds, two big blinds, blinds with antes, ...

And you can win money with a lottery ticket. Does not make it a good investment. A lottery ticket has a better rate of return than 42 off suite. Most players will randomly go in with aces or queens.

There are multiple problems with the proposal that 1 player put up 1.5xBB rather than as it is actually played. a $1-$2 game would then just become a more expensive game as now it would cost $3 to limp, and $6 to (min) raise rather than $2 and $4. Having 2 blinds gives 2 players equity in the pot rather than just one presumably creating more action. A ...
