  • Run It twice

    Hi,

    Does anybody know at what stakes run it twice is available and when it's best to use that function? Is it even better to not use it? Any opinions?

    I've only began using it playing on the 10NL - 25NL tables. Lately I've being getting it in when I think I'm ahead (but usually not ). So far I think it's a good thing to reduce variance a bit. I heard xflixx talking in one of the live training sessions that he also uses it for the same purpose Just for the laugh, the first time I used 'RIT' I shoved my pocket kings into villians pockets aces, and I won both times luckbox or what! http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hand...663_C50BD361C7 Raiser umbup:

          Here's what PokerStars Support have to say

          Hello Paul,

          Thank you for your email.

          I would like to confirm that the feature 'Run It Twice' is available for all cash games including Zoom tables.

          "Run It Twice" allows players to have the remaining board cards dealt twice once everyone is all in. The pot is split in two and awarded for each “board” separately.

          You can configure your Run It Twice settings from “Options” > “Run It Twice (Ring Games)” and select from the following states:

          * Never (default) - You will never Run It Twice
          * Always - You will always want to Run It Twice when possible
          * By Table (default On) - Using a checkbox, you decide on each table whether to Run It Twice or not. The checkbox will start switched ON
          * By Table (default Off) - Using a checkbox, you decide on each table whether to Run It Twice or not. The checkbox will start switched OFF

          If any of the active players in the hand do not have "Run it Twice" activated, the board will run out normally (once only).

          For your information, we do not charge extra rake for Run It Twice hands.

          For more information about this feature, please visit:

          Should you require further assistance in regard to this or any other matter, please do not hesitate to contact us.

          Regards,

          PokerStars Support Team

              Run It Twice on Zoom starts from 25NL. The stakes 10NL and 5NL for sure has not able to do RIT.
              When I open 25NL table i see the checkbox for RIT. At same time I open 10NL and 5NL and no checkbox

                  I've RIT twice on numerous 10nl regular tables so it is definitely available on those.

                    Mmm, PokerStars Support are saying different Hello Paul: Thank you for writing again. You will only be able to Run It Twice when specific criteria are met: 1.The game is either No Limit or Pot Limit. 2.The game is a ring game, or Zoom Poker, with a communal board (Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo). 3. The river card has not yet been dealt. 4.No further betting is possible by any player. 5.All players still involved in the hand have Run It Twice enabled. The RIT feature is available for all stakes at the ZOOM tables. If you have further questions, please contact us again and thank you for playing at PokerStars.

                      True, I see that also. On regular tables RIT is working and on Zoom as from 25NL and higher
                      But 2NL, 5NL and 10NL Zoom I'm convinced there is NO RIT.

                      See below:
                      Top Left is regular 5NL table, top right 10NL Zoom, below left 25NL Zoom and right 5NL Zoom.
                      Only the 5NL regular and 25NL Zoom have a RIT checkbox.

                        Hey ferdyr77, I'll contact one of the table room managers to see if I can get any more info, I know this question was asked by TrustySam before in the forum and I thought it was resolved. Raiser umbup:

                          I've RIT at 2-5C. But (And I could be wrong here) I think you end up paying more rake. Normally there is a limit on how much rake they charge. when the pot gets bigger then that limit no extra is taken. But if you are playing say a 250 BB pot and RIT then I think it gets treated as two 125BB pots and raked accordingly. I no longer RIT.

                              Thanks Paul! Seen the remark from TrustSam and indeed same conclusion. No RIT on 2NL-10NL Zoom
