Just becuse you hand is on the +EV side of Q6 doesn't mean the other guy isn't also.

Remember that you aren't up against a random hand once you have information.

If you raise, and a passive player reraises, I'd dump Kx or something like that.

Er, thanks. I was querying your "always" directive.

And I wasn't really defending you. In fact, I think I was just explaining NV's question.

But whatever.

If you're looking for something to read, there's a section on HU play in Volume 2 of Harrington on Hold 'Em.

Thanks for that link.

How about suited/straight draw cards and pairs?
Do you play minor suited/straight draw cards at all?
Is it good to push with any pair?

I guess in Low Limit lots of players often aren't able to adapt when coming from a big table. Keeping up a tight image will probably be also helpful whilst stealing lots of blinds.

An important issue IMHO is slowing the game down or speading it up. Players will sometimes forget how high the blinds really are and just call without thinking. On the other hand if you're facing some trouble slowing the game down will help a bit.

Dan Harrington's 2nd book on in his 2 book series on Tourneys does a good job with tactics of heads-up play. I suggest getting both books if you want to play tournaments.

Some of his guidelines:

- Never fold on button/SB no matter what the hand (unless your opponent keeps coming over the top when u call.) You are getting the correct pot odds.

- If you are going to raise on the BB, make the raises larger (~5x BB) to hopefully end the hand since you will be out of position. Raising from the button can be smaller( ~2.5x BB.)

In SNGs, by the time you get heads up the blinds are so high that its almost a crap shoot who wins.

Hope this helps!

Just a random thought but does anyone think it would be a good idea if when it gets to heads up there would option to split? I can't imagine it being used very often but i dont see why the option shouldn't be available.
