"After you accept his "gift", could you look him in the eye next time you break him with a 2-outer, knowing full well that you aren't going to reciprocate his generosity?"

Very easily if I did not ask him for the money, which I never would.

If the guy even hinted back to you that he wants it back I'd send it to him. I mean you never asked for it and it was a gift.

I'd have sent back the $$ and called it even.

But i don't condemn anyone for keeping it too.


The fact that you're asking this question means that it's eating at you. Is that worth a measly $1200?

The responses are kind of surprising. I expected them to be along the lines of "you are the dumbest person alive if you even consider sending the $ back".

Anyway, he asked for the $1200 back because he wanted to play some more with me. I was in a really good mood so I sent it back and won it back 5 min later minus maybe $8 in rake.

Oh, if he asks for it back, I'd probably give it back. No way I give it back unprovoked though.

Good thread. I didn't take it as you asking for advice, but rather fodder for an interesting discussion, which is why I think posts like this one:

are kinda besides the point of the thread. Obviously you are going to do whatever makes YOU personally comfortable, but it is interesting to see others' lines of reasoning.
