Deal It Twice

In a cash game when two players are involved in a large pot and one is all-in, they might decide to deal the remaining cards twice. If one player wins both times, then he receives the whole pot, but if both players win one hand each, they split the pot. Also known as “run it twice” or “running it twice”, as long as the poker site doesn’t charge extra for it, it’s a great way to reduce variance.

Here’s the “Run It Twice” option on PokerStars.
