Heads Up play seems to me to be the purest form of poker combat.

It is a one on one fight of skill, aggression and nouse - plus a lot of psychological mindplay, between just two combatants, (a bit like boxing or chess or marriage...)

And it can save a hell of a lot of time.



Please - just in case anybody is tempted - I do not require hand analysis....

....sometimes it gets easy



Now -

Heads Up - its a great game and my Opp here had me on the ropes several times - I got lucky but there was a lot more interesting stuff than taking it down with the big monster hand.

I recommend you all take your stuff to the Heads Up tables and see how you roll there - it is an education in itself - I wish they had fifty cent or dollar games but you need $1.50 just now.

There is very good training available here - and my mantra is keep improving - be that from shyte to pish, or pish to rank, or rank to full on frickin genius,

Take care all
