I've looked at my stats for headsup at $0.01/$0.02 and my winrate seems to -60 bb / 100.

Can anyone give me some advice on how to play abc poker headsup?

Rake eats headsup harder than it eats 6m?

don't play hu, play fr and learn to be nitty.

micro stakes is all about waiting for hands and waiting to out cooler your opponent. don't waste a single thought or second trying some higher level bluff. Do however be creative in finding new ways to vbet

none of the advice here is any good except for the rake comments... yes the rake will eat u if you are playing hu at an empty 5nl table, how often are u really playing HU at a 5nl table??? dont learn to "play nitty and wait for hands" thats how u will fall into a HORRIBLE habbit of playing your CARDS and not your OPPONENT.

think of it this way, if your playing a game of basketball and your oppenent is lefty, if you do not play him to his left side you are stupid and your strategy is a losing one. learn to addapt now, learn to accomidate, learn to adjust. fuck cookie cutting and playing a set style

You have to have something to mold squids. You gotta play tight and shit at micros so you understand value betting, board textures, betting lines, etc so you can mold that info later to adjust to opponents that actually use some part of their brain. Playing like a robot IS a winning strategy at micros and it builds a foundation that you can use later to improve.

Learn to appreciate the value of the dollar. The rest is easy. (Hurricane @ TL)

I have some starter vids for MSNL HU, last I recall just play 56s+, Ax+, K7s+ and value bet pairs, preferably top pair.

bye now

Like ABC Poker in ring games, only wider PF Raising ranges

You probably already knew this, but asking "how to play ABC HU" is an even worse question than "how to play ABC FR". You just cannot get a good answer. Just keep thinking about poker when playing and ask yourself what he can have. Its better to start playing FR because the ranges will be narrower and easier to define --> less secondguessing --> fewer mistakes.

Watch a vid on some site, will probably help.
