    This is AWESOME.

    I wish I had seen this sooner I went 2-0 today in non parlays. I don't know about either of this week's remaining games. I'll advise unless you play a spot before I see something.

    You can play the Cubs tonight if you want. It's Lester man. That should be lights out but I'm by no means sharp at baseball.

    Can final tables at these events make deals/chops for like the top 5 payouts? Big differential betweens those top spots...

    They can make deals at any time. All it takes is player agreement.

    Well done, I won my first deep stack at Mohegan Sun, not quite the take you scored, but that's impressive, those Borgata players are cut throat.

    Real nice job, I'd put 1/2 your earnings away for future tournament buy ins.

    Oh yeah, I saw a final table chop the prize pool with the final six.

    My experience is that guys get too paranoid about chops. Play the game, let the chips fall where they may.

    Some of the deep stacks I play go into hour ten and the players at the final table are like "that's enough" and decide to chop to end it, especially if the stacks are pretty equal.

    I've chopped many a trny, particularly at underground games around h town.... if the stacks are equal, it's certainly warranted. even if theyre not, throw a few extra bones to the chipleader, and you're done....

    all it takes is one hand to flip a stack, one bad beat, and your final table fortunes can change in a heartbeat, so choppin' is usually wise....

    i've chopped at the nightly MTT's at the wsop on a couple of occasions, once as the chip leader.... each of the other six players left threw me an extra $200 bucks, and we were done. even got a guy with a lot of gambling losses to take the 1099 for "first place money", while I got the 1099 for seventh place money.... 1099's and tax consequences can affect choppin' in casino-sponsored trnies, as they don't 1099 for the amount of the chop, but for the actual prize money stated per place

    *
    Card room managers encourage chopping prize pools too.
    They don't want to supervise a final table at 1:45 am on a Thursday when the rest of the poker room is pretty much dead.
