I'll pile on here, but I'll explain briefly, so I think it's a fair trade. The standard deviation for an HU SNG is going to be on the order of 1 buyin - if you're winning 50% and losing 50% for 2 and 0 buyins, that's an average of 1 buyin, and then you have 2 possible scenarios, both of which involve a distance of 1 from the average. The standard deviation for a conventionally structured SNG is widely accepted to be somewhere between 1.5-2.0 buyins. So the standard deviation is lower for the HU game, suggesting your performance will be closer to average and thus less variable.

Great post. However, you should add:

1. Position is everything.

Position is very important, especially because you have control in building pots when you have position.

Thanks,

Indy

I've learned a lot from these forums. I don't mind sharing what I have learned.

Great post Indy. I love playing HU, but I feel I am too week tight. Seems like everytime I turn up the aggression, I get burned. Maybe I am not correct with my timing, I don't know.

Do you find that the strategy changes much between low and high stakes HU matches?

Unfortunately, I've tried to explain a certain techniques before and got bashed for it by $10 players (lol), so I'm deciding whether it's worth the effort. Probably still is.

Teacher, you must help me. I seek to learn the true Five Elements Poker, so that I may revenge myself on those who have dishonored me with their disreputable River Strike style. You are the greatest poker warrior in the land. Help me, please! I beg of you!
