This is a discussion on Serious poker game or friends. within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; ,You at a final table with your best friend and he needs more than you prize, you would let him win, I certainly would not,
This is what I tend to do when I get HU versus a friend (unless that friend happens to be Collin ). Assuming we’re in the relative ballpark of even stacked, I like to go for an even chop with maybe a little bit more on the line, like loser buys dinner, as a fun incentive to play for!
I would consider that he will get a part of the prize already if we are talking about a tournament and it's already heads up. If there's only one prize for the winner I will still play it and help him later if I do win.
