Online Poker Dictionary: Running it twice

Check Regal Poker for Latest Poker News, tips and more.
Running it twice (sometimes called doing business) is a method of determining the winner of a poker hand once all betting on the hand is complete but before the final card(s) (either community cards or other cards) have been dealt. In practice, this is only done when the hand has gotten down to heads up and one player is all-in and the other player has matched their bet. Running it twice can be done after either the flop or the turn, but can only be done after one of the two players is fully all-in. Both players must agree to run it twice in order for the procedure to be allowed.

Most commonly seen in community card games like Hold ’em, and only rarely seen in commercial casinos, running it twice directs the dealer to deal two sets of the final cards to be dealt, thus creating two different outcomes. The pot is split into two equal halves, and the first half of the pot is awarded to the winner of the hand using the first set of cards that were dealt, and the second half of the pot is awarded to the winner of the hand using the second set of cards that were dealt.
It is also possible to run it three times (or, in theory, run it as many times as there are cards available to do so), in which case the pot is split into thirds, and the thirds are awarded using the different sets of final cards.
