Oh I love arguing about chops. I gave away $27 of my $2427 equity to break a deal once.
Another time, we were playing three handed at ft for like three hours, during which time I dominated and emerged from short stack to big stack. So I offered an even three way chop when I took the chip lead. The short stack rejected!!! He bust out next hand, against me. He flat called AQ to my 3bet with A7, flop A7x. Oops.
To those who don't like chopping... don't chop. Noone is making you. Just be honest with the table... if someone says to me "I don't want to chop" then I won't raise the subject again unless that person busts out or reconsiders of his own accord. If there's someone at the table who badgers those who don't want to chop, he's the arsehole for persisting, not you for not chopping.
I don't mind a rule that bans chops, it wouldn't stop me playing a game.
