How to Do the Double or Nothing Yo-Yo Trick

Learn how to do the Double or Nothing yo-yo trick from 4-time US National Yo-Yo champion and 2006 World Yo-Yo champion Paul Yath in this Howcast video.


This trick is called Double or Nothing. You start off with a breakaway throw. Like the Trapeze, you swing it over your left index finger but instead of landing a string, you go completely around over your right index finger and you swing it around twice onto the string. So it's like you're doing a Trapeze but twice over. So you go around your left index finger, go over your right, and your left index finger. To dismount you can either just hop the yo-yo out, like that or you could take out your right index finger and do Outside Pinwheels to bring it to the trapeze. You can also do Triple of Nothing. From the Double or Nothing you can also go into the Triple or Nothing, which is basically the same thing except you add another rotation. So that's Double or Nothing and triple is just going around
another time. So, triple. Just wrap it around three times. you could also do a Quadruple or Nothing. Two, three, four. From a Double or Nothing you can also do combos, too. Right back to Double or Nothing. And that's a Double or Nothing.
