When you chop if it was heads up all the way like blinds vs blinds that ends with a split pot, you end up losing the rake and getting back less money than when you started. That sucks. So I usually have been running it three times or once but recently I've been running it once only.

I don’t understand how this doesn’t benefit the dog in almost all circumstances. You have a 40% chance to win, but the chance you lose both is much less, 36% without factoring in cards on the board for the second run. That gives you a much better chance to leave the hand without losing. Maybe a more extreme example will help. You have 1 out, the ace of spades. You would want to run it as many times as possible right? This is simple probability, or am I missing something?

I personally never run it twice! If a player knows you will run it twice then they will be more enticed to push a drawing hand or run a bluff against you. If they know you only run it once then they are less like to shove on you with a draw, just my thoughts. Heck, its hard enough to beat them once much less twice and if I did run it more than once it would probably be 3 times, Lol.
