If you are fortunate enough to make it to the final 2, 3 or 4 in a tournament, you may be asked to chop the pot. There are many reasons for this. Sometimes people are tired, or they want to play in another Tourney or they are the short stack. It is perfectly acceptable to chop and move on but by no means are you required to do it. Unless all participants agree, play will continue and there will be no chop. Push back if you do not want to chop.
