  • Heads up beginner course?

    Does anyone know if there is a heads up beginner course somewhere?

    I came back from a 7 months break, still playing to aggressive, too much bluffing and losing slight bits of money by it. But i set my sights on Heads up because i love the 1v1 challenge.

    There are really 2 problems with my heads up at the moment.

    1. Heads up start at $1.50 wich is alot if your bankroll is only 10 dollars.
    2. 90% of the Heads up video's in the library are about $15 and higher.

    I got the basics down e.g. minraise close to every preflop and c-bet after a flop because 2 out of 3 times your opponent will miss. The only problem with this is that people in the micro heads up (1.50) dont care about that and call with just about any hand. At the end of the hand they just spike a rivercard and win a hand just because i couldnt bet them out of the hand even if they have trash hands...

    Is there any special strategys for this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi XxTiberxX!

    There are a number of HU videos in the video section. Please take a look at the ones from Andre (HoRRoR77) as he's the heads-up specialist.

      This is not what Andre recommends in his beginner HU coaching (all of which are played at the $1.50 level, and this is the majority of his videos, not $15 buy in games). Check out his beginner vids as John recommended. umbup: Dave

        Watched first and half of the second video, decided to do a heads up game with a decent opponent.

        It came all the way through 100/200, i kept putting pressure with my preflopraise on 80% of the hands and he kept giving chips away. I've learnt not to valuebet on postflop unless you have something or when you have a good chance of beating the board.

        At the end he went all-in with 1000 chips (5BB) with 66 and i called with 8Qs, and I came out on top. Was a sweater for a first game though, was really excited

          Way to go Tiber!umbup: sounds like a grueling match! When you get a decent size HU sample under your belt you will find more ways to value bet other hands besides top pair etc..! Experience is the key. btw, it's been a long time bud! How ya been?
