PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. PLEASE ADD TO THE SELECTION OF HOLD 'EM CASH GAME TABLES "2-PLAYER MAX" AKA "HEADS-UP" CASH GAME TABLES. HEADS-UP PLAY IS THE ONLY PURE GAME LEFT AND EVEN IF YOU THINK YOU ARE PLAYING AGAINST A BOT, AT LEAST YOU WON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT OTHER PLAYERS AT THE TABLE COLLUDING AND SHARING INFORMATION WITH ONE ANOTHER LIKE AT A TABLE WITH 3 OR MORE PLAYERS. EVERY OTHER ONLINE POKER SITE HAS THESE. WE ALREADY HAVE HEADS-UP SIT-N-GO's WHICH I AM GRATEFUL FOR. I'M SURE EVERY HOLD 'EM CASH PLAYER ON THE SITE WOULD WELCOME THE ADDITION. THE ONLY DISCUSSION WOULD BE WHETHER TO HAVE A ''KING OF THE HILL'' ARRANGEMENT WHERE EACH STAKES LEVEL HAS ONLY ONE TABLE (TO PREVENT PLAYERS FROM REFRAINING FROM PLAYING BETTER PLAYERS), OR TO HAVE IT WHERE ONCE SOMEONE SITS DOWN AT THE TABLE A NEW TABLE OF THE SAME STAKES LEVEL WILL POP UP TO ALLOW A DIFFERENT PLAYER TO SIT AT WHO DOESN'T WANT TO PLAY THE PLAYER ALREADY SEATED FOR WHATEVER REASON. I HOPE WSOP.COM WILL TAKE THIS REQUEST SERIOUSLY BECAUSE IT IS SERIOUSLY A JOKE THAT THEY DON'T ALREADY HAVE THEM. I AM GOING TO TRY TO ATTACH A "POLL" TO THIS POST SO PLEASE VOTE.!.! thank you very much, Danbot

I really hope they would add Heads-Up Cash Game Tables.

We are not likely to add additional HU cash games. We've experimented with them in the past and they have an overall negative effect on the poker ecosystem. Simply put, players lose too much money too quickly and they are prone to abuse.

How about some type of verification system once a certain amount of money is exchanged on a HU table. I assume you mean possible money laundering when you say abuse because someone losing too much money can happen at any table.

By abuse, I mainly mean players who bum hunt and refuse to play other good players, although there are other issues as you pointed out as well.

Bum-hunting = abuse? Um ... no, it's part of poker to focus on playing weaker opposition. I would NOT call that abuse, if it's 'abuse' then players shouldn't be able to table select at all (of course we should be able to table select, please do not in anyway negate that!).

HU cash game tables would be grand. Or AT LEAST deep-stacked HU SnGs, starting with at least 300BB. I mean, starting with 100BB is just a completely different game!

I have to agree with Bill about the nature of HU cashgames on a site's ecosystem.

However I do love the game of HU and used to play it exclusively. It would be nice to do some HU play for more bbs than a normal SNG offers.

Maybe a new type of SNG could be offered to more closely simulate HU cash play. Say 3k starting chips, 10/20 blinds with no blind increases. Since it is a sng no one can bumhunt.

As of right now if 2 people really want to play each other HU deepstacked they have to sit on a 6m table and sitout when a 3rd person comes. I'm sure that annoys those people trying to join 3rd.
