      ok i'm a ring game player but today was frustrating so i put in $2 for a 663 man tourney.

      the blinds go up 15min so thats nice and slow so plenty of skill to flex.

      i'm in last 3, i was short stacked and so kept pressuring then knock one of the two equal big stacks out after two double ups.

      so, im in chip lead

      12:7

      winner gets $250, second gets $140

      i thought, gap is too big so we both negotiated and i selected $230 for myself and he was happy to agree!

      tell me if this was a good deal or what!

      BOOM! :D

      Yes, it was, you should have only got about 210 in this situation. ;-)

      How do you go about arranging that? I mean how can he trust you to give him the money once he all ins on a bad hand? Do you have some sort of middle man or what?

      partypoker give you the option in final table, you get to know if anyone (but not WHO) is willing to deal.

      so, i noticed he badly wanted to deal and i ticked yes too. the game is now paused and since i am chip lead i can suggest a custom pyout and then we go to confirmation....etc
