Hit and run

Definition of hit and run

The hit and run or hit n runs are the reality of the players who play one-on-one. When a player wants to play 2-player poker (one-on-one or heads-up-player), he takes a seat, waits for his opponent and starts playing when the opponent arrives. hit and run is the reality of playing only a few hands one-on-one, winning 1 or 2 pots, being a winner and leaving without warning. You play a few hands, win a little and quit.

Hit and run is legal, but not moral

When you take a seat to play one-on-one with another player, if you want to be cordial, you can chat with them to agree on how many hands or how long you want to play. "I'll only be here for 15 minutes" or "We can play a minimum of 1000 hands". Leaving without warning can be frustrating for the other player. Especially when an opponent is new and very aggressive, you may feel like you're going to study him a little bit before adjusting and after 10 hands he's gone. Always make sure you agree on the number of hands to play with your opponent before the game starts. This will give you a better reputation.
