HU sngs aren't a strength of mine but as this has been hanging around I'll take a shot at it.

I think in the early stages you should probably cut down a bit on your opening range. You seem to have a 100% raising range from the button, which while position and aggression is all good, your opponent is soon going to know you're in there with weaker holdings. I'd probably lose the 82o and 93o type of hands and tighten up a bit so you get more respect when the blinds get bigger.

Also on the flip side if someone is folding a good % of their buttons to you, when they do raise you, 3 betting with Q9 and similar usually won't work out well.

I think you should just take your time a bit early on, feel your opponent out and then apply pressure later when the blinds get bigger. If he is aggro then get in spots where you can trap him, or create a tight image early on so your bluffs work later when it matters.

I'd also recommend watching the Spacegravy vid
