Back when I was playing alot, (and winning), I was invited to a sit-n-go by another player. I was on UB, playing in a $5 single table sit-n-go and quickly made friends with most of the players at my table. I of course won the event, ( i was on a hot streak ), my 5th or 6th win of the day. After it was over, I was about to sign-off when a pop-up appeared from UB stating - " XXX Player would like to invite you to play in a Single Table $5 sit-no-go tournement. ID#xxxxx. Click to Join". To the best of my recollection that was the wording, may not be the EXACT words, but you get the idea.

I had forgotton about it until just now. At the time I knew you could challenge a player to a HU but wasn't sure how to do it, never wanted to do it either. But I was and am still curious as to how this player was able to send me an invite. I never had the opportunity to ask the player, as I had somewhere to be and had to log off. I had planned on investigating it later, but I forgot.

I still see no way to challenge or invite players. Has anyone else seen or done this?

As far as I can tell, U.B.'s "Challenge" feature is only available in HU SNG's:

I don't have access to my computer with UB at the moment, but the invite might be a feature of the Ultimate Buddy add on that is available from UB. It's basically a friends list that shows who's on, what table etc. Just a guess that it might be here.

Thanks for the screen shot. Now I know how for HU. It was for a $5 SNG, thats whats so curious about this. I did read the pop-up like 4 times cause I remember being confused as to how they did it. My first thought was that it was a new feature,( I had just received an update). This was as far back as before the blackjack

aren't heads-up matches considered SnG as well? maybe it was a heads-up, as well as a SnG? ;)

Sorry, didn't put in my OP, 10 seater SNG. I see no way to invite....only challenge. The pop up said - invited.
