Default Stacked vs Felted

Recently a friendly B&M player has correctly me several times when I used the term stack as in "to take all your chips". According to him stacked means "to build someones stack and double them up". Felted, he tells me, is the word I'm looking for.

Help me B&M Nation keep stacked on the tip of my tongue.

I think you are right (and that's how I've always heard it, FWIW).


Here's a Sklansky-Miller line that I believe makes your argument......

"...With the nut draw, however, you have higher hopes: STACKING SOMEONE".



Best Wishes

Howard

I believe the terms are synonymous except when used in reference to breast augmentation surgery. In that case, one usually gets "felted" after one gets "stacked".

Not sure, but I think "felted" is an older term. Maybe it's just a California term. Anyway, I was using the expression "stacked" once when a friend asked WTH I was talking about, that the correct phrasing was "felted"; sorry, not anymore, oldtimer. Not sure why we needed another word for the same thing, but I think "stacked" sounds cooler.

It is generally agreeded upon that Phil Laak coined the term "felted."

Stacked means to lose your stack. Felted means you're "down to the felt."

Same thing - all your chips are gone.
