The wife made a special appearance at this week’s home game. This time we made two deals:
- I stake her and she keeps her winnings
- I split my winnings 50% up to the first $80, 70% beyond that
The night started rough with both of us having to reload in the first hour or so, but we managed to felt three people between us (two of them twice) and ended up with a tidy profit for the night. I was up $110, she was up $50. After we did the profit maths, I ended up $50, and she pocketed $110. I’m apparently better at poker than deal-making.
