in general staking and giving 50% is crazy unless it is for a long period of time and you hav a big edge over your opponents.

for a one time deal for big money with the player being broke he should be very happy with 20% of the win and no risk of loss. for a long road trip than 50% looks reasonable if he is playing only in good games.
If you're on a trip every thing is fine. If you're at the home room, he can lose today and get a new horse tomorrow and you're out.

Why would it take more than one incident to derive this determination?

I'll understand if you do not want to reply to a person like me.
