re: Poker & Chopping a tournament prize pool
Ok heres what happened...
The chip leader said "No Way, the only person to benefit would be the person getting 6th place." I didn't try to make the deal, someone else at the table did. So, I listened for a few. The same guy, guess he thought he was speaking for the table, then announces "OK we'll give you $1200 and we'll split the rest [$460 each]" Thats when I said " No Way" lol. I also thought the best deal was the first one offered.
The big stack ended up winning, then smugly says "See thats why I didn't split" LOL....I tried to explain to him that it was a good deal, but nevertheless. I think we've all had games where we thought we had it in the bag, then choked it up...lol. It just didnt happen this time, no matter how hard I prayed for it. I finished fourth for $500 and was happy with that.
All in all it was a good tourney and we had a guy named Paul Matteo show up with a couple of friends. http://www.pokerpages.com/players/pr...aul-matteo.htm
He plays in alot of these Charity tournies and should be commended for it. He busted out about 12th and one of his guys bubbled.
