In an all in situation I will always agree to run it 3 times, 9 time out of 10 you lose a third at most and still come out ahead. I'd rather have the 1% of the time that I win the first and lose the next two (while still staying in the game without a rebuy) than have the 20% that I lose outright. Eg. AA vs JJ is 80:20 odds
are you wont lose any of the 3 times you run it (cause technically the odds are 80:20 for all three before any are ran) but theres that chance that you could get cracked on the first run, if you dont run multiple times then you're cracked... if you do run multiple times what are the odds you get cracked all 3? Nearly nonexistent unless they pick up a straight on 1 of em.
