PSO Staff:

Has consideration been given to making a web based system for heads-up challenges?

It could work as follows:
Player A issues a challenge to Player by entering their PSO handle, and selecting the game and starting structure from a web form. Then they would specify a buy-in range and up to 4 time ranges. The "Submit" button would then send an e-mail to the Player B informing them a challenge was made and providing a link to review and accept or modify the challenge. The challenged gets to choose the exact buy-in and time from choices, propose modifications, or reject the challenge.

Acceptance schedules the match and everything is done without direct PSO Staff involvement.

Or there could be a few tables in the lobby that automatically start when two players sit down and then play out like a tournament. I.E. you cannot leave until it's over and no new players can join once it's started.

There could be 4 NLH tables with buy-ins of, say 200, 500, 800 and 1,500. Or something along those lines.

There could be a couple of O/8 and Omaha High tables also. And if anyone was interested, there could even be a limit table and a stud table or two.

PS. I would like to see ring games, before heads-up tourneys, but it seems fairly simple to me, but then I have no programing skill at all.
