Half Kill

  1. Noun

    An increase of 50% in the betting limits for a given hand or number of hands after certain pre-specified criteria have been met.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Example: A $2/$4 limit game with a half kill would increase to a $3/$6 game during hands in which there is a kill.

    EXAMPLE: "I prefer using a half kill more than a full kill. The added excitement of increased stakes is there even with a half kill, but it is still close enough to the normal limits that I don't have to worry about losing a lot more than I could on any other hand."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues

    RELATED TERMS: Full Kill, Kill, Kill Blind, Kill Button
