    title says it all...?

    I have been told that it is because they dont have a trainer yet that has a significant sample size beating these yet.

      Hi Ross and welcome to the forum. umbup: I'm not sure on this, so Roomik is probably right. The head live trainer may have something to add if he sees this. I'll send him a pm. Let us know if you have any other questions.

        Hi guys,

        sorry for the late response, I was at the wsop circuit. Roomik is close, we don't have any live trainers who play HU as a focus. As the community grows and there is a large enough demand for this, we will likely look at expanding in that direction when warranted.

        Thanks,

            I think finding a heads up specialist will be a tricky task.

              I agree, all the ones I am familiar with dont like to share, and are making too much money to take the time to help us noobs

                There is not a lot of material on HU play on the site, all I found was a few articles. Do you have to be a specialist to give solid insight on head up play? I don't think so. It is an important aspect of the game, you cant win a tournament without winning heads up. PSO and it's membership would benefit from more material on HU play.

                    This is true of course, and I have covered HU play in live training already. It's covered in one of my theory classes (MTT Final Table Theory Part 2) and in play example (MTT 40 player replay Part 2). Both Andy and Chris run the occasional session where they get HU in a sng of various sizes as well... in fact Chris has one coming up this Thursday night, part 2 of a replayer session he got HU in a 180-man.

                    There will be more play examples as they come up. This is not an extensive, detailed treating of HU play imo, but it's what we have available so to suggest we have nothing is not accurate. I think the theory class I cited above is a good start, and we will continue to add examples of play as they arise, but an extensive, detailed treating of HU play would require someone with the experience of time focused on that very unique form of NLHE.

                        I did mention I found a few articles from doing a search for HU material, but using the PSO search feature that is all I could find. I was not aware of your videos that cover HU play, I'll be checking them out soon. You said in your earlier post that if there was a greater demand for HU material PSO could look at going in that direction. I'm really just trying to show that I support having more material on the subject whether it's in the form of videos or articles

                          This is a training video for HU by Kid Poker (pokerstars pro) on a POKERSTARS TABLE was my point.
                          How can another site have access to this and not pokerstars own site.
                          Sorry i didn't realize what the other site was I thought it was just similar to you tube.

                            My guess is contractual rights, the other training site does not allow for that particular video to be displayed by any other training platform... basic business competition and all. But honestly I'm not privvy to Daniel's video making or contract with PS or other sites, so I can't really answer you.
