Default Ultra high stakes HU NL tourney

Does anyone want to prop bet on whether or not a 50K HU NL tourney goes down in the near future? I am trying to organize one to complement the 5K event Ansky is setting up in HSNL. I'll bet that the 50K event will happen if anyone wants to take the other side straight up.

Also, it's a huge brag for internet poker players that there is even a chance of getting 8 guys to put up 50K.

I am interested in getting in on some of the action but for a smaller sum. We can escrow if you want once I decide on an amount. Just one question, would the 50k trny be set up online or live?

i'll take the other side. but i don't think this is an even money shot... so give me 3/1 and we're on.

i think you'd have a much high chance of this going down if you chose full tilt instead since they have enough ultra-high stakes games to make people dropping 50k viable.

so bet against it?

and no, i'm not giving 3:1. straight up or not at all. i have to get people to put up 400K in total for this to happen. there are obviously many many logistical problems. if you dont want to bet straight up, forget it.

I just checked the HSNL thread and a lot of people seemed interested in the 50k trny. It will probably run if FTP or Stars allows it ...

I kind of assumed this thing would run in much the same fashion as the other HU tourneys that have been held for MSNL & HSNL. Basically someone trusted holds all the money, then they play a very low or zero buy-in tourney on Stars w/ custom rules for 300bb stacks & blinds that don't go up. The money gets paid out later.

I don't think arranging this as an actual 50k buy-in tourney via the sites would make sense (rake), and I doubt the sites would go for it as well.
