Default Rekindling My Love Affair With Poker

To be honest in the last few months I've fallen out of love with Poker. My BR has been roughly the same, not up, not down, life is getting in the way (I've just started a Master's degree which is very time consuming) and so I've not been playing very much lately. However, tonight I found the HU matches on Stars (I've not played HU before apart from one PTips tourney) and so far I'm 3/4 thanks to this sort of play:

PokerStars Game #6704249755: Tournament #34101416, $5.00+$0.25 Hold'em No Limit - Match Round I, Level III (25/50) - 2006/10/20 - 16:34:45 (ET)
Table '34101416 1' 2-max Seat #2 is the button
Seat 1: ec1is (2195 in chips)
Seat 2: Yockerbas (805 in chips)
Yockerbas: posts small blind 25
ec1is: posts big blind 50
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to ec1is [Ac Js]
Yockerbas: calls 25
ec1is: raises 100 to 150
Yockerbas: calls 100
*** FLOP *** [5s 6s 7h]
ec1is: bets 150
Yockerbas: calls 150
*** TURN *** [5s 6s 7h] [8d]
ec1is: checks
Yockerbas: checks
*** RIVER *** [5s 6s 7h 8d] [9h]
ec1is: bets 200
Yockerbas: calls 200
*** SHOW DOWN ***
ec1is: shows [Ac Js] (a straight, Five to Nine)
Yockerbas: shows [6d 5h] (a straight, Five to Nine)
ec1is collected 500 from pot
Yockerbas collected 500 from pot
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 1000 | Rake 0
Board [5s 6s 7h 8d 9h]
Seat 1: ec1is (big blind) showed [Ac Js] and won (500) with a straight, Five to Nine
Seat 2: Yockerbas (button) (small blind) showed [6d 5h] and won (500) with a straight, Five to Nine

The guy didn't seem to know where the raise or fold buttons were. Anybody else playing much low stakes HU? What are your thoughts and strategy for playing these? Admittedly it is an extremely small sample but I seem to be able to get hold of the game far more than a standard 10 man SnG. Thoughts appreciated.

Another thing...strange chat. Didn't know how to cope w/ this:

PokerStars Game #6705322636: Tournament #34108450, $6.00+$0.25 Hold'em No Limit - Match Round I, Level II (15/30) - 2006/10/20 - 18:11:39 (ET)
Table '34108450 1' 2-max Seat #1 is the button
Seat 1: ec1is (470 in chips)
Seat 2: joeymah (2530 in chips)
ec1is: posts small blind 15
joeymah: posts big blind 30
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to ec1is [Ac Kc]
ec1is: raises 60 to 90
joeymah said, "how old r u"
joeymah said, "r u a m/f"
ec1is said, "!"
joeymah: raises 2440 to 2530 and is all-in
ec1is said, "male, is this a chat room?"
ec1is: calls 380 and is all-in
*** FLOP *** [5h Qs 3c]
joeymah said, "lol"
*** TURN *** [5h Qs 3c] [Kh]
joeymah said, "sry"
*** RIVER *** [5h Qs 3c Kh] [7d]
*** SHOW DOWN ***
joeymah: shows [4h 4s] (a pair of Fours)
ec1is: shows [Ac Kc] (a pair of Kings)
ec1is collected 940 from pot
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 940 | Rake 0
Board [5h Qs 3c Kh 7d]
Seat 1: ec1is (button) (small blind) showed [Ac Kc] and won (940) with a pair of Kings
Seat 2: joeymah (big blind) showed [4h 4s] and lost with a pair of Fours

It seems that chat plays such a bigger part HU. I blocked one persons chat who was pissing me off. Any advice on this guys?
