Using a new recursive sampling algorithm, we present simulation results for single 2D chain polymers near and below the -point. They involve much longer chains than previous simulations (high statistics for chain lengths up to 2048, a few chains having even 40,000 monomers). Good agreement is found with the exponents derived by Duplantier and Saleur, in contrast to previous Monte Carlo simulations. No indication is found for a two-step collapse, as suggested recently by Orlandini et al ., or for an alternative set of critical indices derived by Warnaar et al. Instead, we find evidence for a surface term in the free energy, as proposed by Owczarek et al.
