BRM Heads Up Championship  +3   
Would there be a bit of interest in setting up a BRM Heads Up Championship??

Basically it would work like this:

We set up a Poker Stars home game group (or whatever they've called; they let you create private - password protected) games.

We all escrow a few bucks (say $1 to $20 - depending on what everyone agrees upon).

Then we play the home games, for play chips - so no real betting, though people *could* play their bracket for real $$ if both players agree).

We set up standard brackets, every pairing plays best of 5 (or best of 3) and we keep going, knock-out style, until there's a final winner.

Then - depending on how many people are involved, we pay out the winner(s) - the amount of places obviously depends on the amount of participants.

We did this same thing a couple years back, it was a really good experience for all involved.

Check this thread:

That was the last one..

So - how many people would be interested? I'd be happy to set it all up and hold on to all the escrow money (though someone else can, if preferred - so long as they're a trustworthy BRMer).

So what do ya'll reckon? Fucking game-on or what!?

Count me in Jess Thumbs Up

I'm in!

Awesome idea dude.

Yes! Thumbs Up

Yeah count me in. I suck at HU so would be good experience, but I would say keep it cheap (maybe $3 max??) so that all can play that want to.

I am also obviously happy for you to hold the money in Escrow etc

I would play heads up not sure about the format, if it is too aggressive then maybe like low chips not worth it, should be like a deepstack and i might think of playing and bore my adversary to death and go on to win the title and or maybe just lose money having fun with you guys i am a fish and also should be a good time for me, as based on uk time i would not be able to play, anyway cheers have fun guys and will be hoping to see how it goes and congratulate the winner. Hehe cheers, have a nice day mates!

I will try. Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

great idea Thumbs Up Worship Thumbs Up 8=========D (.) (.) (oh that last doesn't belong here...never mind) i'm too poor to say no to a dollar or more (the fact that i am a sh1tty poker player might have sth to do with this as well) but one good thing i can do for you mobbits is to recommend a trustworthy fella for a safe escrow:

fcukin yeah Thumbs Up

Awesome, sounds like quite a bit of interest already.

Regarding the format of the games, for all of the early rounds, the participants can agree on things like starting stack, blind speed, etc. Though - we will set fixed properties for these for the semi-finals and finals.

Regarding the amount we each put in for the prize pool - we can possibly even make this variable, it will make the payout structure more complex, but nothing that can't be managed..

If you really want to - you can even just pay for the glory of it (don't put up any $$). Obviously you'll be ineligible to win anything, other than bragging rights - the prize money will just flow down.

Regarding time zones, I'm GMT + 10 hours, so it's not easy for me either.. But that is fine - we've done this before, it's not that tricky to figure it out.. Where there is a will, there is a way.

Basically - if you're interested in playing / would like to play - then play - the rest we can figure out to accommodate for everyone's situation (what you can afford, what times you can play - all of that can be figured out).

Main thing is - if you wanna play for the glory, then put your name down!!

For a few days we'll just collect a list of names, then I'll write a script to randomize the starting brackets.

And I will finally have a chance to get my title, last time we did this I was robbed!

I was in the final, best of three, we had one each, playing the final (third) game and this is how I lost the title:
