I've gotten more aces in doubles play than singles, and almost all of them were thrown with the confidence that if I missed and blew by the basket, we were still in position to get the deuce.
I gladly share any ace pots I win in doubles with my partner, whether he wants it or not. We're a team for every single shot we throw.
I'm part of the 5/1 club and with doubles aces I've ALWAYS done a 70/30 split (if partner is equal or better player) and 60/40 if not - mostly for the reasons stated here and in other posts....you can be more relaxed /aggressive (whatever the situation calls for) if your partner is already in position for a 2.
