Yesterday I played the 150 k tourney on 888 (I won the ticket of 109$)
Three times I got my chips all in with the better hand on the turn, and three times the obvious fishes got saved by the river to chop the pot. I can't say, that I love to chop pots, when I have the advantage, do you? BTW, the end was: After 2 1/2 hrs I finally got my first Premium hand KK UTG, min raised and left unanswered. Next hand I have K2s and the CO min-raised. I shoved my last 9 BB hoping he folded as usual to 3bets, but he snap called and showed me ...KK!!! Poker is soooo funny sometimes :(

Chop pots are ok if you wer not ahead. Otherwise they suck. Such as Aces versus A2 off, it runs out A 10 J Q K. It has happened to me.

Chop pots are better than losing.

chop pots ? I do not like them , ofcourse if the buy in is high for my standards and I am the one to be saved by the river , I wouldn't say no . But overally I do not like it , and also the times I have been saved are very few , most of the times my opponents get saved , they playd right with the RNG :(

When I am ahead and chop pot happens, my first thought is at least my opponent didn't get so lucky that he wins. And when I am behind and chop pot happens, I am ok with it.

So overall, I don't mind it. Obviously your case is excessive and everybody would get annoyed at that point. But its rare for such to happen.

When I am ahead and a chop pot happens, it throws me on tilt, where, there after I have it out for the villain who chopped with me. When I am behind and a chop pot happens, I feel overwhelmed with joy. Maybe I am bi polar with my emotions with poker.

Only if I was about to lose!! Chop pot is a nice bonus on the river when your about to lose a bunch of chips!
