Default lol HU heater....

Can't say I haven't run pretty awesome, but it helps that I refuse to play regs (played one reg this month -- lost $150 ).... Basically sit and wait for fishies and they spew monies to me because they play bad.





Obligatory lol HH....

All on Absolute.

200bb buy-ins FTW.

If you're playing $50nl HU it's a good idea to have rakeback, and NEVER play people that buy in for the minimum. Rake will destroy your winrate otherwise...

If a shorty sits I insta sit-out and tell them I can't play for less than 80bb, about 1/2 the time they do it 1/3 of the time they just leave, and the rest go insane with rage and pledge to block all my tables until I give them action (luckily these people usually don't have much of a roll so you just open up 4-5 tables and they can't block all of them).

I datamine constantly in order to identify regs. It's not that I don't think I can beat them, but it's going to be for a low winrate and there are just too many fish to waste time on them.

Most important part of my strategy, and this is key, is to run like god and cooler people in 500bb pots on a regular basis.

Having ridiculous winrates like this is much more sustainable at HU than people think. I'm not saying 50bb/100, but 10ptbb/100 is easily sustainable over the long run even at stakes up to 1000NL. Most millionaires in poker do it purely throug HU play. It's so stressful though, it drives me insane when I try to dedicate to HU.

Congrats on the nice run, keep table selecting and you'll do fine.

That's a nice graph. Whenever I log onto AP, you're usually on those tables with ridiculous stacks. Do you have to wait a long time for full stacks? Whenever I sit at the 50NL HU tables, all that ever sit with me are 40BB stacks.

It takes a bit of patience to get to play full stacks, but like I said the shorties are willing to buy in for $40 (80bb) about half the time. It helps that people that buy in for the min. are horrible 99% of the time. Obviously depends on the time of day, but usually I get somebody to sit with 100bb+ within 10 minutes (or I look for people from my buddy list and get on the waiting list).

Of course I don't expect to be able to sustain a 54ptbb/100 winrate... would be nice, but that's why it's called a heater. Overall I've run at 15ptbb/100 at $50nl HU which I don't think is that unreasonable at AP, but I tend to run hot overall.

Playing different players at HU is 100% different than playing 6-max. I normally 6-8 table and had a hell of a time playing 2 tables HU. I could do it, but my results were so much worse. I got better at it and could do 2 towards my end of my HU stint though.

I play 2-3 tables max of HU... usually two, but if somebody that I know is terrible sits at my 3rd table I'm going to play him. For 6-max I play 4-6 tables and never more than that.

I kind of regret making this thread now because the last two nights I've been hammered against a couple absolutely horrible players.

Fun hand from tonight.... villain is a 70/0/2 drooler that has shown himself to massively overvalue hands on paired boards (stacked off for 120bb earlier w/A8 on xKKA8 board).



Obviously he insta-left the table.

I apologize for bragging poker gods... please to be showing mercy on me.
