    Swapping action in poker game, math needed

    Me and two friends want to take a shot in a big poker game - we want to trade action to reduce variance.

    The deal is a three way action swap of 15% each.

    My question is this: after the session is over and all 3 of us calulate how much we won / lost, what is the easiest way to calculate how much is owed to each person?

    Thanks for your help,
    Ly

    Not everyone gambles/plays poker. can you describe exactly what a 15% action swap is?


    PS: if you describe it carefully, you may find that you end up saying the calculation to yourself.
