      Double-or-Nothings are entirely different game.
      Be sure to read the article How to Play Double or Nothing Tournaments

      And put in a few random hands that are near borderline "Push" for 50/30/20 SNGs, then change the structure and run again.

      There are lots of situations in DoNs where the ICM model says "fold 100%", for example.

      There is a live coaching session every other Wednesday on DoNs that you should not miss if you are contemplating playing these.

      You should also watch these 6 videos
      (Note: I hope that link works, if not just put in "double" as the search term on the videos page.

      Good luck w/ the DoNs
