Kill Pot

A kill pot in poker happens when a player posts an overblind in a limit poker game. A kill pot can either be a half kill or a full kill. With a full kill, the limits are increased by 100% for the next hand, whereas they are increased by 50% with a half kill.

Kill Pot Poker Example:

Let’s say you’re playing a $2/$4 Texas Hold’em game. The kill is typically triggered when a player wins several pots in a row. In this case, a full kill would raise the limit to $4/$8, while a half kill would increase it to $3/$6.
