An illegal practice that floor brokers use to avoid an exchange's rule against trading at fractional increments, or "split ticks". The practice is when a floor broker executes a large order, and then fills a portion of the order at one price, but then fills the rest at a different price. This allows the broker to quote different prices to different customers on the same order.
