Should one ever cash out an all in?

Hello everyone!

I'm wondering whether it would be wise in any circunstance to "cash out" an all in (that is, you cash your percentage of the pot, based on equity), providing that your bankroll is sizeable enough to allow for bad beats.

Looking through the streams of various professionals - they use this function quite often.
I'm playing at my limit, and having a suitable BR for him, I do not use this function. Maybe I don’t understand something ...:D:D:D

Cash out is great option to reduce variance, i'm using it from time to time especially when i have 80% equity like AA or KK vs small pocket pairs against one or two opponents, cause sometimes they will catch some flush draws/straight draws or hitting their set.
But sometimes with AK vs QQ or JJ i don't cash out cause it's a flip, i would prefer to take the risk and win full pot.

Hello! At first I didn’t cash out or even watch the percentage of my winnings, but after many losses I revised my approach to such situations, if the percentage of winnings suits me, then I take it away, and with a small percentage it makes sense to take a chance. Sincerely, Sergey.

This option is disgrace. Don't do that :D.
I mean you pay for "low variation", but this will not happen. In reality. The bad luck is not only "bad beats".

I hardly do the "cash out" option as more often then not I have found I shouldn't of done it during showdowns. I'm just not a fan of it.

I sometimes do it to reduce variance and avoid tilting.
In the past I don't tend to call 100BB 3bet jam from unknown BB, when I open AK from BTN. With the cash-out function, I would take these spots and see what villain jam with.

Hi
Good option to cash out depending on how much you are getting back.
As long as it adds to your profit go for it.
Rather than your opponent win it all.

Agree 100% with this. It's not a bad option if you want a more stable long-term strategy, but personally I'd rather take full risk.

I play 10 PLO ZOOM exclusively these days for cash games, and I think that the strategy may be different in some ways than Hold'em.

I find that if my equity is really high in a heads-up situation, if I am in for 1 buy-in, I will let it run out. I will either end up with 2 buy-ins for my next hand or 0 buy-ins.

If I already have 3-4 buy-ins for a starting stack, I will probably look for a more chip protection strategy here. For example, let's say I'm all-in for $38, and I could either cash out for, say $70, or run it to win $82, but the RISK is if I lose, I'm down to $0, then I'm taking the insurance. Maybe that makes me somewhat risk averse, but in that situation, if I have a guaranteed big score locked up if I cash out, why not do it???

If I'm in a multi-way AIPF pot for one buy-in, with 30% equity (but everyone else is about equal), I'm going to run it out, because I'll either win 3+ buy-ins, or lose 1, the reward is much higher relative to my risk. Plus, in that situation, cashing out means you're going to be a net loss for that hand, so why even play the hand to begin with?

As for Hold'em, it's different for sure, and I don't know what to think about it, but in a coinflip situation (QQ vs. AK), I agree with the one person that said to run it out.

Personally I don’t think it’s that good of an option. It might seem like a safe alternative once you get all your money in but at the end of the day Rake is one of your tough test opponents to beat at the table. Giving away and extra 1% to save a bad beat might seem like a good plan but it burns up a lot of your profits in standard spots. If you want to lower variance a little try using run it twice, I don’t think it charges rake. However if you find yourself wanting to use it too often you might be playing a little above your stakes. I don’t think there’s a reason to “lower variance” when your playing at stakes you feel comfortable in

Cash out

In general if you can handle the variance (your bankrolls large enough) you should never cash out as you automatically lose 1% of the pot which is quite a lot in the grand scheme of things especially as edges between players get smaller.

Cash out

Definately. I think even with aces against another 20% hand like a pair or suited connectors you should cash out. If you're a 90+ favourite then cashing out is very tight.

Absolutely not. If you're a winning player and making consistent +EV decisions you shouldn't be throwing an extra 1% away to the house for short term ease of mind.
