An additional blind that is imposed in some games on a player who wins 2 hands in a row. "Kill tables" are thought to increase action and also impose a penalty of over-aggressive players. There are different types of "kills". A "full kill" is a forced bet at twice the size of the big blind. A "half kill" is a forced bet at 1 1/2 times the big blind. Some casinos allow the player posting the kill blind to act last, while others require him or her to act in turn.
