An idea I think we'd all enjoy. Tony please read this.   +4   
I propose we run a BRM heads up tourney. Idea is this.

We all pony in XX mob points into a "pool" which Tony can hold in escrow. Once we've got enough entries, someone (I volunteer myself) will randomly pair people together, and we'll run a typical bracket elimination tourney.

Game of choice is HU NL Texas holdem, and each round will be best of 3. It doesn't matter what site you play at, as long as both contestants can agree on a mutual spot. Play chips or any level you want to play, so long as it's a normal 100 BB Hu NL texas holdem.

Additionally, once the lineup is chosen, we could take side-bets on who we think will win/lose etc, pool style.

I can put together a thread posting each round, as well as matchups. I'd say we need at least 16 players to make it a good match. Of course we need even numbers since it's a bracket style tourney.

So who's down for earning some bragging rights? Tongue

Good idea...

I think I would enjoy a HU lesson from jovicakralj, without having to shell out $15 every 5 minutes or so (assuming I'd last that long)...

Okay, so far we've got:

Retribution
AlexSimion
bullettooth1
marqis
sadamman

I'd say if we could find 16, we could run with it. The only hitch would be if Tony can't/won't escrow the points, as there's no way to transfer otherwise.

I'd say anywhere from 100-500 points would be a fair BI. Works out to be around $1-$5 worth of Mob points.

Perhaps do a 70-30 payout structure, or a winner-takes all, depending on what people vote for.

16 people @ 500 points each would be a total of 8k points up for grabs. Nice sum if ya ask me Blink

In a 16 people pool , I think that winner takes all sounds pretty good Tongue.

Not sure this will take off, but if it does, I'm in! Blink
Sounds like fun, aspecially the "bragging rights" thingy. Big Smile

I'm more for the 70-30 payout structure or something similar btw.

Let's run this up the flagpole and see if anyone (Tony) salutes it. lol Big Smile

Okay, I can allow this, on the following conditions:

* You guys do most of the work, I'll just remove MobPoints from all entrants and then transfer the winnings to 1st (and 2nd?) place once it's completed.

* No "recruitment" - don't try and get someone to signup at some site where you just happen to have a "tell a friend" link ready, or stuff like that. Im'a gonna get pissed and fire up the ban hammer!

* Most of you guys in here probably have accounts on most sites already, but if you happen to play your HU at somewhere you don't, please use our links to signup there - I think we deserve it Smile

* No commitments. I cannot guarantee that we can do this again, or when, so for now consider this is one-time show, so don't sit on the fence, get in on the fun while you can or you may never get the chance.

Good luck!

I think you should go for a two-prize system, making the player that lose the final HU to also have some reward for getting there. I don’t know if I can enter this because it will depend on the date, but it is so difficult for me right now to get time that it is better if you don’t count with me. But don’t forget to advertise it around here, and then tell everybody about the result. I want to know who is the best HU player from BRM!

I'd be down.

And i agree a 1st/2nd would be fairest.

im not sure but i think the idea is to organise the time with the player you get drawn against. so you could play it.
