Chopping the pot only happens in cash games - if two players are left in a hand they might agree to take half the pot each without going to showdown. That would be chopping the pot.
Chopping the prize in a tournament is slightly different because it can only be done with the agreement of all
the players that are left in the tournament and, therefore, it isn't as open to abuse by colluders.
