High Stakes HU matches(1000NL+)--earn your CROWN

Credit goes to CubKiller for this idea. We're thinking this will be a fun way to get action.

Length, tables, time frame:
1k hand match min, but you can agree to up to 2k hand matches. You must wait your turn to challenge and you must wait 4 days to re-challenge the same person if you lose. You have 3 days to play your match once you have been challenged. You must play 3 tables minimum.

Matches are set to play at 4-8pm EST, but can be played at other times if both people agree. If you cannot come to an agreement you will be given a 5hr window that you must play the match in.

Stakes:
If someone wants 2000nl and the other wants 1000nl you must play 1000nl.

Sites:
The match must take place on stars or ipoker. The current crown holder gets to pick. If the crown holder only has ipoker, you must play on ipoker and vice versa.

When can you challenge?
Only when it is "open" and there is not a pending challenge. When you get done with a challenge immediately post in this thread and announce its open, and the next person to post AFTER that gets to be the next challenger. THERE ARE NO LISTS.

****Would be cool if you guys could post some graphs and hands

****I can get under-titles for you guys. Let's say you must hold the crown for 3 matches in a row and you get an under-title of "HS HU crown holder." We can work on that though--someone come up with something short but descriptive/catchy.




Current crown holder:

Spoiler:



Challenges complete: (L= Lose W=Win C= had the crown at the time of the match)

ArrrInnn (L) vs. WCGrider (W. C)

KJemmy (L) vs WCGrider (W. C)


Status: OPEN

I should be able to get under-titles for this but I have to ask to get them done. I don't see why it would be any issue though. Let's say you will get an under-title for holding the crown for either 1 month or if you hold it for 3 matches or more. It will say "600NL+ HU crown holder" or if people have other suggestions.

Re: 600NL+ HU matches--earn your CROWN

How does the + in here work? People can play as high as they want (10knl?) but are forced in to playing 600nl if the challenger so wishes? Maybe this should be 1knl+ and the mid should be extended up to 600nl. That being said, the higher this one goes probably lowers the chance of action.

Re: 600NL+ HU matches--earn your CROWN

I think a 600-1knl category and a 2knl+ category would probably be better

Re: 1000NL+ HU matches--earn your CROWN

2k+ category would have very little action, i think 1k is a nice medium where someone with say a 90k bankroll can challenge and test himself vs someone like wcg, who probably can't be bothered to play someone decent at nl600
