Just a thought, but could you switch to more of an Ivan type game? Where the reward is the tugging and not so much the winning? That way you could build the value of the tugging and make it less about possession?
I also don't particularly care for 2 ball. Little pops on the pinch worked for Argos.
I know when we taught Cade to bring things back, we basically did what Chris said, running away when he won so he'd have to chase me, hitting my chest etc. Although we never did the circles. As soon as he tugged back, I would pretend like he was the strongest dog in the world, let go, and then immedietely lean back and encourage him back. I really never gave him any room to "get away" since it's only about arms length and I often play this game sitting on the floor.
