Golden rules of DONs:

1) Less all-ins more chance to get to the money:

1 coinflip -- 50% chance to loose

2 coinflips -- 75% chance to loose

3 coinflips -- 88% chance to loose

......

Can you prove this to me please?

This is flawed poker logic.

A coinflip is always around the 50/50 area in poker. 2 coinflips is not 75% chance to loose, its two flips with a 50% chance to loose (assuming equal stacks!)

Yes every time you get around 50/50 chance to win. But your goal is to survive DONs no to get biggest stack. So your main goal is to go all-in 0 or max 1 time per game, what will give you 50%+ chance to get ITM.

Simple example:

You throw coin one time in the air -- you get 50/50 chance to get one site up.

You throw coin two times in the air -- you every time get 50/50 chance to get one side up NOT two times in the row same side up.

0.5*0.5=0.25 is the real chance to get one site up.

More times you throw more unlikely coin will land on same side everytime.

BTW Coinflips (chances will not be 50/50 everytime) was only exapmle to show the point about first statement.
