RegisFan: GSK, he’s near the top of the list but I’m pretty sure there are a few who made the leap faster. Especially peeps who returned for a second round.

One thing that I wanted to see happen in Super Millionaire that never did happen was to have a contestant go into the next dimension with the 50:50, which also meant they would have the Double Dip too.
Now what I want to ask you guys is: If you were in the hot seat yourself, how would you play the money tree knowing that you technically have a guaranteed right answer in the palm of your hands? If there was a question that you had a good idea as to what it was, would you try to save the lifelines, or still take the automatic correct answer?
Me personally, unless I absolutely knew 100% what the answer was to a question, I would use both lifelines ASAP to at least get that money, and then go from there.

If I could narrow it down to two in my head with at least 90% certainty, I'd go with the Double Dip and save the 50:50.
If I was about 80-90% sure of any one answer, I'd likely guess for it, and try to save my "hat-trick" for the next question. By making this gamble on the $500,000 question, you've assured yourself $1 million if you're right. Not bad for a free guess.
If I use the 50:50, I'm using the Double Dip with it 100% of the time. No sense in trying to save it; it's a nearly worthless lifeline by itself.

Well, I believe I would do something similar like kplewisvox , but it technically depends for me how difficult the questions are and what I'm risking to lose. For example, if I played for a question above $500, 000, I would try to make the question simpler by using the 50:50 right away and follow up with the Double Dip. As kplewisvox stated earlier, this would of course result to a 100% guaranteed win. Unfortunately, this would mean that I wouldn't be able to save any lifelines when they could be useful for another question. However, if I played at $500, 000, I would use the 50:50 to decide which of the remaining two answers could possibly be correct.
In conclusion, I do agree with kplewisvox, but I would play it a little bit differently.
Sitting here at home, reading this to myself, I think "I would definitely try to save both lifelines and have an automatic correct answer to a more-valuable question later in the game," but I know I would probably think a little different if I were actually to be in the game playing for real money. While I would love to say I'd take my chances and do everything I could to save the 50:50, I personally would probably use it if I had to just to ensure I get something.
Being able to save it though and end up with both lifelines at once would be an incredible strategy if you could manage to do it!
