    Arrow 2-tbl tnry, HU portion

    In light of the other good discussion on HU play, I will post this. I had a coach, who was in favour of keeping tight and letting the opponent be the one to take all of the risks. Flame away. I will quote/comment on some specific hands. My table image so far has been very tight. I have not showndown a losing hand the entire tournament.

    You have to bet this turn when one of the only 2 cards in the deck hit the turn to keep your 5's ahead of any non queen hand.

    Edit: After quick reading the comments you put beside the hands, I think you need to completely revamp your heads up game. You aren't even in the right universe of thinking.

    I'd have to agree there. This is the only non-ABC hand you played, which in fact cried out for ABC. It left me shaking my head thinking WTF on both players play. Just stick it in pf. Shoving your last 2400 with air after he bets every street makes no sense and his fold is an even bigger head scratcher.

    That was kindof my thinking and I was looking for a good slap in the face to get me there. Reading the other thread, I have no clue how to play HU except lean on the math a little and pray.

    If anything, you are better of praying than thinking about math at all headsup.
    13Cards is the worst thing to happen to Canadian Poker ever.

    FYI.

    I think you have a few problems HU.

    1) Weighting of hand strength. This isn't a full table. Flopped BP, 2nd pair are big hands. Any ace preflop is big. You need to be raising with stuff like A-little, K9, etc. The blinds are big relative to your stack, this isn't the time to be looking to play small ball/implied odds, you need to be picking up chips.

    2) You're giving way too many walks when you're in the SB. You have position, and you're giving him your blinds, you should be limping/raising way more, only folding the most trashiest of trash (and only then if you expect to be facing raises if you limp).

    3). You're letting him limp in with all his crap. You need to adjust and start raising preflop when he's weak, or check with the intention of betting any dryish looking flop (one of the few benefits of being OOP is that you get first chance to bluff post flop).

    If the stacks were a little deeper, you could take things a little more passively and limp more (hoping for him to make bigger mistakes post-flop).

    coach? to what level is he certified? is he a member of some kind of professional association? do they have any standards? is there any way he can be brought up on charges?

    but seriously folks, ya, what everyone else said. the raise button is on the right. use it liberally.
    I can't tell you how awesome it feels to win a WSOP bracelet!

    just wondering ... everyone seems to say he played it badly yet he won... is it pure luck that he did?

    I agree the opponent sucked donkey balls though...

    I have to agree with many of the comments. I posted this because it felt odd playing this way. Yes I won, yes my opponent was a complete donkey (calling with 38 soooooted).

    I have been thinking about this a lot and the fact that my opponent would not fold a HUGE range of hands preflop. What is the point of raising a bunch (especially with weak holdings) when he can't fold? If I don't hit, I either bluff off all my chips with an all-in bet (that prob gets called with bottom pair or A high) or fold. Seems like an opponent like that is more worth trying to trap (as I did in the very last hand).

    The K9 I shoulda pushed, played that badly. What other hands here to you raise with? Blinds are big, why even try to limp with Td 6d? If he raises, I have to fold, just threw a bet away.

    most people play extremely poorly heads up when the blinds are high... i suggest reading this article by lee jones about mathematically optimal heads up play when the blinds get high

    I've played a few heads up games and have one thing to say about this post. I didn't check to see your chip size and everything on the hand you mentioned, but here would be my take on it, based on how the other player was playing.

    Td 6d. Well, that's a decent hand. If you get two diamonds, you're on a flush draw, and you could get close to a straight. It's a little far fetched, but possible. Flopping a T would mean a raise on your part. Either way, you have a mediocre hand, so in my opinion, raise it like you have the nuts. Chances are he will fold or call. In this situation no matter what happened on the flop, I would raise. If he re-raises, I would fold. If not, he calls, you can likely see a free river card.

    The hand has potential. This is a perfect hand to try to steal blinds with. DON'T LET HIM RAISE YOU unless you have the nuts. When strong, act weak, and when weak, act strong. That's how I play and it seems to work ok.

    Any other advice on this? I want to hear back about my HU play as well. Would this be an ok move in this situation?
