Default Re: Maybe slightly OT - $ share in MTT winnings

35-50% seen fair in my mind. If a friend of me played for me,I would without a doubt give 50% but maybe I overvalue the meaning of being friends. in a business case I said 35%

Factors:

1. You did not pay for the tournament entry fee.
2. You did not discuss a % ahead of time.
3. He obviously didnt offer. Its an uncomfortable situation for BOTH of you.
4. You played the most difficult part of the tournament to get him there.

All things considered, $750 to $1000 is a good amount IMHO. More than that is not proper because you did not pay for any portion of the entry. Less than that is shorting you IMHO.

If you explained the specific circumstances of what happened to a cross section of those who are active in tournament backing, I believe that you would get a response that 20%-25% was fair for you to receive.

i dont understand how you could do anything but split it 50/50, you guys are friends right? some of you people that say he deserves nothing are stingy bastards and probably don't possess any friends.

I think we misunderstood your use of the word 'friends'. This dude was never your friend. He was just a slug who used you for your poker skills.

FWIW, I think it is very important to try to find a 'right' answer to these types of questions, especially when friends are involved. Especially if you are serious about your game. I compare it to many examples from real life. I have a real estate investment, when I was asking my friends to work on the house, I insisted they charge me their going rate. They, of course tried to refuse the money. But I explained, that if they were putting in windows at my home, I would be willing to accept their generous gift of their skills, but this wasnt my house, this was business. They werent doing me a favor, they were trying to hand me money.
If you dont make business, business, you are asking for trouble in the long term. Can you imagine how pissed my friends would be if they were constantly putting windows in my homes, and I was driving up to thank them in a Jag.

The point is, if you are really friends, and this is a one shot deal, the onus is on the original player to be overly generous for the sake of the friendship, and it is on the 2nd player to refuse the large gift. (just like the example above, with a single tournament being 'my home'). When it isnt a one shot deal, it really has to be looked at like a business, b/c that is what it is.

50/50 is the most fair. If I were in his position thats what I would do, why quibble over a few hundred when you would both be happy with $1500 each?
