    Concede

    1. Every time I play badminton with my best friend, I let him be the winner.
    2. I always yield my best friend to win when I play badminton with him.
    3. Each time I play badminton with my best friend, I concede him to win.

    + Do the three sentences above have a natural conversational tone?

    Thank you so much

    Re: Concede

    No. Only the first sounds natural.

    Even more natural would be

    'Every time I play badminton . . . I let him win.'
