Are any of you guys in hard times? Or know anyone going through hard times? I want to hear some inflation hard times stories, I don't have any.
Do you have co-workers
I don't think any engineers I know are going through financial hard times but who knows, I'm remote and don't get to shoot the shit as much as I used to.

The biggest financial problem engineers tend to have is high student loan debt and between inflation and not having to pay interest in forever that seems like it should be pretty good times.

I know only one single engineer mom, and her primary hardships seem to be battling a toddler and navigating the dating scene. As far as I know these are not related to inflation but maybe she only dates monetary policy wonks.

in a cash game when two players are all in before the river, running it twice means dealing the remaining cards two times and awarding half the pot to each winner

It's a way to reduce variance. When they're all in and there's nothing left to do except wait for the cards, players will sometimes agree to "run it n times" (the most common n I've seen is 3), which means they get dealt the missing cards n times, and each win is worth 1/n of the original pot.

Let's say you and your opponent are all in postflop, and show your cards, and turns out you're 80% to win a hand. This is a scary spot! There's a 20% chance you get wiped out despite doing everything right. For you, it might make a lot of sense to run it 3 or 4 times, which means you're less likely to win the full pot, but it's almost impossible for you to lose. After all, you outplayed your oponnent once, so it's worth letting him have a chance to stay in the game, in exchange for making (almost) sure that you don't get destroyed by a single bad card. It's like insurance.

Your opponent, on the other hand, might accept because running it multiple times gives him a better chance to salvage at least part of the pot, letting him keep playing.

Another way of thinking about it is this: let's say I offer you a game where we flip a coin. If it's heads I pay you $1 million, but if it's tails you pay me $500k. This is obviously a very good game for you, but... you'd still be a bit nervous about taking me up on it, wouldn't you?

But let's say I let you run it five times: we flip five coins, and every time one comes up heads I pay you $200k, and every time one comes up tails you pay me $100k. I bet you'd be a lot happier to play this version!
