Right, but there is one scenario where your risk isn't lowered by 50%, that's when you get your 2nd half in only to see price then turn bad. In this case, which won't be the majority of times, you'd ideally have lowered your stop losses to adjust for the 2nd entry and your max $ risk on the trade. So it doesn't help in 100% of the cases, but in most cases it can help smooth out the old equity curve a bit. Of course, it needs to fit with the strategy, some strategies just don't allow for it and you have to be 'all in' from the start. Scalping for instance, it's hard to "average up" when you're only going for 5 pips of profit. lol. In any case, glad I could help.
