I was playing a shoot out 4 players per table, I made to the final table got to heads up and I lost with an ACE and lower Kicker when his pair came on the river. I've learned a good lesson not to go all in with an ACE low kicker and risk losing the tournament even though I did lose. I ain't at a professional level but I love playing texas hold'em. Give me some tips on how to choose my cards when I'm playing HEADS UP and play like a champion and not end up in second place again. AA, AK or any pocket hand?

Merry Christmas everyone! Maybe I'll run into somebody at a table. Good luck everybody and look out for Itchy_neck!
