I tend to agree. I'm all for splitting the ace pot, but I play doubles at Orchard where the pot seldom gets about $100.00. I think if it got much above $300 I would probably slide $100 to my partner and keep the rest for my greedy self.
For the record, I've split two aces with partners, but I have never had a partner of mine get an ace.
There have been at least three instances in the last two years where someone has just hit their very first ace and somebody else comes up to me afterward and asks me to go explain to the person the protocol of splitting the pot. In fact, that happened just this week. I have no problem with doing that, but it seriously begs the question - why me? Am I really the most diplomatic guy you could find? Somehow, I doubt that.
