    This year I spent $21,000 on Survivor Pool Entries. I routinely bet $5K on NFL sides. My reason for not wanting to chop does not involve blind greed. I have different teams available in multiple pools I'm in and want to maximize my chances of winning the largest payout possible. In this particular pool I think I have more EV than the remaining field. But that might not even be a factor as elsewhere I'm possibly willing to sacrifice small EV for a chance to continue to gamble all of these together in this format. I sympathize with those the money means more to, and I'll be happy for you if you win. But, I won't be chopping soon. A situation where I might consider is if in the final week each remaining player has the same biggest favorite available. Something like that i could be open to, but at this stage it is way too early for me to consider a chop.

    You are just trying to justify your BS. This is a $40 entry and nobody cares about your $21,000 in pool entries. Nothing you said makes me think you are trying to maximize your payouts, you just think your better than everyone left and still have NE left so I guess you have a warm and fuzzy feeling about that. So to me, you sound like an out of control gambler or a blindly greedy. I'm done trying to chop with you, if you want to chop in the future you'll have to be the one asking.

    I also have zero desire to chop at the moment when it's still a 30-way split. I have intentionally picked in a way not to get to week 13 but to maximize my chances of winning. GL to you guys if you work something out.

    Just a note on pool chops

    We only officially recognize deals that involve all players' unanimous agreement.

    You are certainly welcome to make any side agreements and deals between yourselves as you desire, but those will need to be executed between the parties involved- ie, we'll only pay out to the official winner(s).
