    Hi, any one with idea of how best to use the Double up feature in Video Poker. And let me know if it advised to use it or not.

    The best way to use the Double Up feature is to not use it at all. It increases the variance with no effect on the expected return ("payback").

    I don't use it, but if I had to, I would only use it when I have two pairs, and draw, and then fail to get a full house.

    Dear Dan and fellow Video Poker Player, Thanks for your suggestion, I have tested it several times and realised that the more you DOULE UP in VP, the more it become aggressive ( more swinging of up and down) and this will ruin you bank roll and finish you quickly.
