Hi all,

I frequent two cardrooms: Capitol Casino in Sac, and the room at Cache Creek. Capitol plays with a half-kill, and Creek plays both half and full kill.

As I understand it, when a pot is killed, the following happens:

Full Kill: the Killer posts a live blind equal in size to the big blind of the killed amount and the stakes double. Example: 4/8 game killed. killer posts 8 chips and the game is 8/16.

Half Kill: the game is now 1.5x the stake. Eg, 3/6 is now 4/8, 4/8 is now 6/12. No posting required.

I was playing the Slime and they combined the two (three quarters kill?) -- the killer posts, but the stakes are still only 1.5x. They called it half-kill. I mentioned that in half-kill there is no post and got berated by another player about it.

What am I missing?

The posting of a bet has nothing to do with the "half" or "full".

A full kill means the stakes double (3/6 becomes 6/12); a half kill means that the stakes increase by (about) 50%. (3/6 becomes 4/8 )

The blind posting by the killer is another of those cardroom to cardroom rules.
