A mandatory wager twice the size of the big blind that is posted by a player who has met the criteria necessary to trigger a kill.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Commonly used criteria to establish a kill include when a player has won two consecutive hands, after any pot that exceeded a certain size, after looking at one's first two cards in a draw game, and after a scoop in high-low split games. In these cases, the player who won the pot would be required to post a kill blind on the following hand and that hand would apply limits of double the ordinary amount.
EXAMPLE: "I won two pots in a row and killed the pot. Of course I had to post the kill blind, but I?d rather do that than have not won the pots to begin with."
