    Lightbulb What is the meaning of "Three Split" in this sentence?

    Hey guys, Hope you all are doing fine,

    The question that I'm gonna ask as is obvious in the title, is about the meaning of "Split".
    Now, I'm going to give you the context:

    In a newly released movie called "young ones", there is an auction. The man who is selling goods says:
    Start the bidding at three hard. How about a number three? I got a three from 26.
    Can you give me a three split, a three split, can you give me a three split, I got a three split from 24.
    Gimme a four, four, can you give me four? (It goes on until number 7)

    I think by "Three hard" he means 300$ cash, but what about 3 split?

    I really appreciate if you help me out.

    Thanks in advance,

    Presumably 26 and 24 are the identifier numbers of the relevant bidders.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Also, there is no need to write a new post to say "Thank you" to anyone. Simply click on the "Thank" button in the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful. It saves time for everyone.
