Posting overblinds in order to raise the limit of a hand to stimulate play is called a Kill Pot, and is oftentimes the result of a player winning consecutive pots. Can also be a half-kill. For example, in a $4/$8 game, a kill pot would raise the next hand to $8/$16 limits, whereas a half-kill would raise it to $6/$12. Kill Pots are almost always found in limit variations of poker, with a mandatory bet size on all streets.
