## How to run it twice in poker?

How to run it twice – To run it twice, certain conditions must apply:

The casino hosting the game must allow the procedure

At very large limit or large buyin (high-limit or high-stakes) games, many casinos will allow players to run it twice as a courtesy.

This cannot be a tournament

Most tournament rules explicitly forbid running it twice; those which do not would almost certainly disallow it if it were requested.

Only two players can be in the pot with live hands One of the players must be all-in Both players must agree to run it twice The river card must not have yet been dealt

If a player wants to run it twice, they generally must stop the dealer from dealing any more cards while they negotiate with the other player and try to get them to agree to run it twice. If not stopped, a dealer will generally continue dealing the rest of the community cards. Once both players have agreed and the dealer understand the agreement, the deal continues as follows:

The dealer deals the remaining cards to the board as normal, burning a card before each upcard, same as usual. The dealer then slides these recently dealt cards upwards, leaving the previously-dealt cards in place. The dealer then deals another set of finishing board cards (either the turn and river, or just the river, if the turn was already on the board before the agreement to run it twice was made), once again also burning a card before each upcard.

If one player has won both of the hands (that is, if one player has the best hand regardless of which of the two sets of board cards is used), they are awarded the entire pot, just as they would have been if they had not run it twice. If, however, one player has the best hand using one set of board cards and the other player has the best hand when using the other set of board cards, the pot is split in half and half is awarded to each of the two players.

## What happens when you run it twice in blackjack?

Run It 2X Example – Take an example where you get it all-in on the turn vs one player and you both agree to run it twice. What happens next? Two rivers will be dealt. Half of the pot is awarded to the player who wins the first river. The other half of the pot is awarded to the player who wins the second river. But if you both get it all-in on the flop and decide to run it twice, you would deal two different turn & river runouts. Note that you do NOT shuffle cards back into the deck at any point while running multiple boards. It’s also possible to run it twice when you get it all-in preflop. In that case, you would run a complete board (flop, turn, and river) and then another complete board. Sending half the pot to the player that wins the first board and the other half of the pot to the player that wins the second board.

## How many times should you run a pot in poker?

Why run it twice? – The main reason to run it twice is to reduce variance, In big bet no-limit games, it is possible that a player’s semi-bluff gets called by a player who currently has a better hand. Rather than let a large pot depend on a single turn of cards, both players may decide to reduce their risk by running it twice, which makes the odds of winning get closer to the theoretical “correct” odds. Player 2: 6000 chips Board: Player 1 pushes all-in and player 2 calls. The odds are roughly equal at this point: Player 1 has 12 outs twice to make their straight or flush, or a roughly 50 percent chance of making their winning hand. If they were to play this hand normally, the entire pot would go to one of the two of them, and the other would have lost 5000 of their chips.

If, instead, they run it twice, they have a significant chance of splitting the pot, and each getting their 5000 chips back (which is what the expected outcome would be if they encoutnered this situation many hundreds or thousands of times), rather than depending on a “coin flip” to determine who wins the large pot.

Some players prefer to run it three times, both to reduce variance even further, but also to guarantee that the pot cannot end up evenly split: one of the two players must end up with at least two-thirds of the pot. For hands which have uneven probabilities (e.g.
