Heads Up Aggressiveness

When it comes to heads up poker, aggressiveness is key. Since there are only two players in each hand, the likelihood that your opponent has anything worth betting is very low. Make a lot of bets on the flop to steal pots, and you will pad your stack. Then, when your opponent finally makes a stand, he/she will have too few chips to really put a dent in your stack. The articles above will explain how to do just that, and dominate the heads up poker tables.

Avoiding Tilt at the Heads Up Tables

Heads up poker can get a lot more personal than normal nine-handed poker, simply because you are playing against the same opponent every single hand. Some heads up players like to talk a lot of trash to get in their opponent's head, and this is a tactic that can work really well against a player who lacks self control. If you take a bad beat or two and your opponent starts talking trash, make sure to keep a level head and get him next hand.
