    my buddy and I are taking a daily trip to a local casino. we agreed to pool our resources into a $600 bankroll and a 50/50 split. since I have more of a net worth than he does, I said that if we deplete the $600 initial bankroll and I fund a new bankroll of $1000 he's not entitled to any of the winnings. he says he's entitled to 300/1600 or 19% of the winnings. any opinions

    2 different ways of looking at it. Either you are going with a $1600 bank roll which is split 13-3, and the investment part of the return should be split in that manner; or there is a $600 50/50 bank roll, followed by you playing $1000 on your own if the original is lost.
    Your buddy seems to think he should get the best of both worlds.
    PS. I think I would go the first way.

    Of course, yes your friend is entitled to that % of any winnings. He has contributed to the initial downturn, after which he is present at the table to double team a net result. That is if he is any good at BJ. I'm assuming he is because you are prepared to sit with him in the first place.

    Good luck to you both what ever you decide.

    Also, I suggest you give your friend the extra $500 before you sit down to play because casinos don't take too lightly to collusion.

    It's either 50/50 on $600 or 300/1600 on $1,600, but not both. That's assuming you want to be fair.
