Been playing a ton of heads up the last few days and I LOVE it.
Too bad I run bad though. grinded up about 15$ or so in a day or two (more than I had ever won in ring games - 15$ would've taken me weeks
) and then tried moving up to 5$ HU but got my ass kicked twice and then a few more times in the lower levels. So basically up a few buyins from where I started playing HU a few days ago but still not doing immensely well. I do think this is definitely my favourite poker style game so far. Played a few PLO heads up on stars as well - epic fun.
I think branching out to different styles of poker is definitely a good thing for me. TBH, I love PLO wayyyyy more than NLHE, and I wouldn't have figured this out without experimenting. I also wouldn't have discovered how good HU is as well, so if I'm ever gonna drop any wisdom down in this thread, it is that the poker world is bigger than just NLHE ring games or 6max.
Gonna try and learn omaha8 or something too.
