When I lived in Colorado my buddy owned a bar that had poker on Fri, Sat and Sun nights. The winner would take home $50 and the top five would be entered into a winner take $200 on the first tue of every month, not bad for free (minus drinks, however my buddy owned the place)! Also, there was no other bar doing this any where. It drew a pretty big crowed on Fri and Sat, on average 60 or more, not bad for a neighborhood bar.
I can't tell you how many times I've been heads up in this tournament, too many to count. I would say that 40% of the time I would have over double my oppents stack heads up. 30% of the time we would have about the same size stack, 10% I would be a little behind, and the remaining 20% I would be dominated by double or more. You would think I would've won at least 50% of the time heads up. However, I probably only won about 15-20% of the time. I thought that it was mainly due to the fact I played with the same people almost every weekend for over two years. There was a long running joke of who was going to beat me heads up!!
Now that I moved to NY I've only been playing freerolls
and $2 SNGs online and I've done pretty well. I've finished first once, second twice and finished in the top 20 four times, and I've only been playing two weeks!! However, I've done 21 single table SNG with 10 seats. I've won once, finished second 6 times and third twice. So, something is way wrong with my Heads up skils!! Any advice for heads up!!?? I'm tired of being the Bride's Maid!!
