    This is an example of a prisoner's dilemma. I think the standard advice is to vote STEAL because you give yourself a chance at 20k if your opponent votes SPLIT.

    If your opponent votes STEAL, your win is 5k no matter how you voted.

    If you could reliably collude with the other player, then you could work out a deal to guarantee 25k total. But unless the other player is your spouse, I don't know how that could be accomplished.

    Am I missing anything?

    I believe there is no Nash equilibrium since it's not a zero sum game. The strategy that gives them the least valuable best counter strategy (steal) makes them indifferent between (steal/split), even though to you it's the difference between $5k and $20k.

    Real world you'd definitely try to collude. If colluding is impossible I think I'd go with (steal) expecting them to perceive (steal) as a longshot or as unfriendly or something, or even to just pick at random (making steal worth $12.5k on average vs split being $7.5k on average).

    Table play, WHY did you put the Rudy Giuliani Political Scandal in Dom's gambling thread that is asking if he should split or steal in some Freeplay giveaway game ? That's a major hijack.

    Take comfort in the fact that no one is actually backing up his wishes to have you permanantly banned.

    Smurgerburger already nailed the proper strategy so there was nothing left to discuss.

    You could have just left his thread alone, not hijack it with the Rudy Giuliani Political Scandal. I would have been pissed if I were Dom and you hijacked my thread with this Rudy Giuliani Political Scandal.

    I didn't intend to neglect my thread, but I need to study up. There was some movie on the subject, but I never saw it. That was around the time I stopped keeping up with pop culture.
