As has been said, #10 will vote against everything, because he might be the last alive and get everything.

Not necessarily. If it so happens that #n+1's plan will be accepted and leave #10 with zero, then #10 will vote in favor of #n's plan as long as it leaves #10 with some money.

Uhh...your logic is wrong. If there are 9 pirates there, there are plenty of plans that pirate 2 could use that would be accepted.
