Default Forum Heads-up Tourney??

Has this been done already? It would be nice to look at the hand history and also bragging rights of course. I'm not sure how it would be set up b/c i have never set up a private tourney, but it seems feasable. Would anyone play this if it was set up?

We did this on a grand scale a couple of times - side bets, filling out brackets, etc - and it was awesome. But the logistics of getting people to play was very difficult.

Then we tried doing it as a single private tourney (like what I think you are suggesting) and did it once a month for a while. Participation dropped quickly and we just quit doing them.

I think we should do another though... how about after the league? Maybe if we hype it up and get some added prizes and maybe if some people record videos, we could get a nice turnout.

I'd be well up for this. If you're looking for an initial headcount - I'm in. If it does become a reality, I'll see what sort of prizes I can contribute.

depends on buy-in, but its probably going to be higher than what my bankroll can go with.
