-Learn to recognize good 2nd and 3rd barreling opportunities.
-Don't play to many hands oop, you make your money on the button.
-Remember, in hu holdem nobody ever has anything on the flop (in general) so the guy who wins most of the pots where both players have nothing is gonna be the winner. In practice that means you should look for every cost-effective opportunity to steal pots, mostly the small-mid sized ones. It does not mean you should have win-every-pot syndrome.
-When facing light 3bettors, minraise so that you can call more and then use your position to beat them. Float flops, bluffraise flops, let them barrel when you flop well etc.
