However poker is not and thinking like this can cost you money. Lots of it. We often don’t properly take into account the situation that we are presented with at the time we need to make a decision. While it’s important to properly analyze the situation in all forms of poker, in Double or Nothings it can be everything.  There are times when you can push any two in a certain spot.  But change one little thing and folding Queens might be the correct play.
