Okay, this is more about a play used in blackjack rather than some romantical notion of giving in to desires hidden beneath the surface.
Players in blackjack have one of the most awesome ways to exit a round of blackjack in which the odds are just too high against them to win: surrender. Sometimes the underdog stays under. And if it looks like a round is just not in your favor, you need to get out.
With this blackjack rule, players can give up half of their original wager, keep the other half and exit the round. There is no other cost for exiting a round other than that half of your original wager.
Not too bad considering blackjack and poker are the only casino games that give players a way out of an unfavorable round
