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.

Ah. That's what I get for listening to the dealers at Capitol. Every time someone tries to post after killing, they say, "no no no! half kill!"

...listening to the dealers at Capitol.
I may very well be that the Capitol plays the half kill and full kill differently. (I don't frequent that room.)

But the common definitions of half and full are as described above.
