KILL GAMES


  Some rooms have games with a required kill if certain conditions are met, such as winning the last pot. 

 These are called kill games, or winner-blind games. 

  Depending on the cardroom, if a pot reaches a certain threshold size, or if the same player wins two pots in a row, the winner is required to straddle an amount twice the size of the big   blind, and the betting limits for that hand are doubled.

  This can sometimes change the ratio of bet size to initial blinds enough so that significant changes in playing poker strategy are called for.

TRADITIONAL VIEW OF KILL GMES

  Most players tend to kill games as just a way to play for higher stakes and to generate action. 

  When the conditions for a kill occur, the stakes will be raised for the next hand, hence, on average, you’re really playing for higher limits then the nominal limits would suggest. 

  Also,when the kill is on, there are usually three blinds. 

  The more live blinds, the more money the pot starts with, and the more players who will usually compete at least as far as the flop. Hence, more action.
