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."

Interesting. I see him making this claim here: http://lifesabluff.com/interviews/phil-laak-rq.php

Felted. I coined this term. (Circa 2003). To felt a player is to stack them. Get all their chips and leave them with just the felt in front of them. I throw this in as it is has become a part of common poker vernacular and I am most proud of this contribution.

Maybe he reinvented this, or maybe he has timelines wrong, but searching on r.g.p I found an entry from Feb 2000 that uses it: http://groups.google.com/group/rec.gambl...91955c4c309e923

Same type of game with the same kind of
results. If I remember correctly Max got felted; Alan Bostick came in the game and left shortly after.

Mike McDermott used the term "down to the felt" when TeddyKGB cleaned him out the first time and that movie came out in 1998.

Guess I haven't been around long enough to hear the term felted being used, but I've always used stacked in sentences like "I got stacked" <- lost my entire stack or "I stacked him" <- Won his stack, left him with no chips. Hope that helps

The way I've heard them used, they are very similar but not exactly the same connotation.

Stacked: To take someone's stack, usually meaning all at once like an all-in showdown in no limit.

Felted: To bust someone, but not neccessarily all at once. Could be a slow grind.
