I got this idea from an old tv show.

I find it an intriguing philosophical question and will be interested in the results.

There is $1 million.

There is one opponent.

You have 2 options with 4 outcomes.

You can either choose to 'share' the money 50/50 with your opponent or you can choose 'steal' and you get the enitire $1 million.

But there is a cath (there always is a catch).

If both of you choose to 'share' then the money will be split equally.

If you chose to 'steal' and they choose to 'share' then you will get the full money.

If they choose to 'steal' and you choose to 'share' then they get the full money.

If both of you choose to 'steal' then no-one gets any money at all.

So what do you pick?

(The above is only an example, you could have a scenario where instead of money, both your lives are at stake etc).

I will add a poll as well.
