Kill Stack

word type: poker slang

  1. A stack of chips that is small in physical size but represents a large amount of money.


A kill stack is one that is small in stature but powerful in worth. This type of chip stack is called a kill stack because it usually puts an opponent all in. For example, in a tournament a player can make a stack of their $50k chips to make $500k (only 10 chips) to put a player who has a lot of chips all in because their stack totals a lesser amount.
