Agreeing to prorate a pot and split it. Chop the blinds. If the whole table folds, the blinds (if the house permits) can each take back their checks without showing hands. At the end of a tournament, the final two players might agree to chop the prize money in a ratio according to the size of their stacks.
If everyone has folded to the blinds, they can "chop" or take back their blinds and not play the hand. If two players agree to chop, then this agreement stands while they play side by side, since it would be unfair to change their minds when they have a good hand.
