Strategy help

I played vs agro idiot who in 6max call evry hand and limp most of hands but he is not bad.He just know when to bet and when to fold.I hate fkn idiot.We later continue HU ,he call 99% of hands,he is fkn call station.I cbet probably 50% hands but this guy call prob 99% of flops.When i not cbeting,he bet full pot on turn evry fkn time.I tried to reraise that bet on turn few times but that did'nt go well.He call flop even with A high.Nothing worse when you play with call station + bluffer and i cant believe that i dont catch him in bluff even once.WTF? I fkn hate that guy.He don't 3 bet too much preflop,his 3 bet range is tigh but imbecile call wide 99% off hands.He fk me good few hands,guy bet full pot on turn and river,i call with top pair and i blew it out.Later when i adjust and stop calling that full pot bets,guy bet smaller.And final hand,one of many(guy play good but also have soo much luck) when i tilted i got trips on river,he got flush ,he bet maybe half pot,i reraise 2x,he reraise me again maybe 2x and then i vreak out and exit from fkn table.


Do any off you played vs similar idiots and what is good strategy?
is there any good material for HU?
I watched some Phil Galphond on YT but that is some advanced stuff, and watched some stuff from pokervip,but i think that stuff is old.
It seems to me that is not too much materials online for HU,cause that form of poker is dying.
Maybe i should play HU only vs fish,but i think that purpose off HU is even more competetive nature than in 6max or FR.
Maybe i expressed myself wrong,not purpose but player ego is bigger when he play HU than regular poker tables.At least in my case.

Which are is your own experiences ?

Re: Strategy help

If he is betting full pot on the turn 99% the you should try checking back some strong made hands and exploiting him this way, and maybe only cbetting you're draws, you could start with a strategy like this and see how he adjusts because as you say he is not bad he may see what you're doing and you have to adjust again, Also if he is calling the flop very light you can bet the flop and turn thinner for value even ace high you can get two streets of value from him. Don't 3bet him wide sounds like he will put you if tough spots out of position with his floats and crap that has connected so only 3bet top of youre range.

Re: Strategy help

If HU is not your main game or you are new to poker a player like this might be tricky. It's important to remember that in theory he is doing everything wrong as far as optimal game play is concerned. He is potting all bets so we know he is bluffing w that sizing which is plus ev for us. However, if we calm light and are wrong often he makes money. So best way to destroy players like this is stay patient and wait for the spots. The fact he doesn't 3b is great. Now i understand it can be frustrating to play vs a limper because it's difficult to build the pot. The worst thing you can do when stuck money vs a pl2like this is 3b the few times he does raise pre because i assure you he will likely have a monster hand. Lastly when you do have a hand you want to slow walk him broke by value betting non stop if you see he is calling very quickly go ahead and overbet turn 2x pot and see if he calls. Hope that helps.

Against this player, firing multiple barrels is probably going to be really profitable.
