Definition of Run It Twice
What does the term "running it twice" mean? What is the definition of the term "running it twice"?
If you ever watched the "High Stakes Poker" television show, you almost certainly heard the term "run it twice" being used.
"Running it twice" occurs when two players are all-in before the river and decide to deal the remaining cards twice. Let's take a look at an example to illustrate this:
The board is reading Ad-8d-7c-Kc. Two players are all-in after the turn card has been dealt. They flip over:
Player 1: Ah-Ac
Player 2: 9d-10d
Player 1 has a set of Aces, but Player 2 has a large number of outs (straight draw, flush draw)
The two players decide to "run it twice", which means that the river card will be dealt twice. 50% of the pot will go to the winner of the pot after the first river card is dealt, while 50% of the pot will go to the winner of the pot after the second river card is dealt.
The first river card is the As, giving player 1 Quads. 50% of the pot is awarded to Player 1. The As is now discarded, and a second river card is dealt.
The second river card is the 2d, which gives Player 2 a flush. 50% of the pot is awarded to Player 2, which results in a split pot.
