EV for Dealing it Twice on This Hand??
      05/13/04 11:57 AM

A hand recently came up where two players were all in on the turn in a home game of mine.

Board: Q 10 3 9

Player 1: K J
Player 2: K J

The next day I was wondering to myself if it would be +EV for either player to agree to run it twice and deal two river cards in this situation?

I am not that great at probabilities, but I know that Player 2 cannot possible lose the pot. But would an extra chance at his flush offset the +EV he has of scooping the whole pot if there is no deal and just one river ?

On the other side of the coin, does Player 1 raise or lower his EV by "protecting" himself from a river if he just wants to run it twice?

Not sure if I am being clear enough, but it sparked my interest and my friend and I werent sure which player is getting the short end of the end if we ran it twice.

BTW To make calculations easier, say there is $100 in the pot once both players are all in.

Thanks for any help guys,
