I bet I could do it almost everytime actually! But anyway don't just enter a HU match with a default strategy! You gotta adjust to your opponent! Also I wouldn't 3bet as much in a HU SNG, just a min raise or 2x bb is sufficient. No reason to spew chips everywhere! lol
Hmm.. Ok.. Adjust to my opponent. It's all kinda rock scissors in the end isnt it? So if:
a) Passive Fish who only plays premiers - Go aggressive?
b) Passive Fish who plays loose (calls mid pair) - Go selective aggresive?
c) Aggressive Player - Passive to trap
Along those lines? Yeap, will lower my raises..

Sometimes I'll make a passive check but call anything till the river and then make a big raise.
The main thing is to make scary unpredictable moves that will put the pressure on your opponent.
Unpredictable. Hm Ok. Have try that.

Its never a good thing to be passive tho in my opinion. If he becomes in the state that he never gives up a hand and you keep folding .. you need to turn the tables around quick.
Mm.. Lol, that's my usual "default" position but will keep that in mind.. thanks. Adapting, yeap.

What better programmes? I'm still very new to tools and all. I've got HEM but it seems but suitable for cash games.. wherelese I play SNG and MTTs mostly.
I have noticed SS is very limited in scope... I tend to fall into trap putting all fish into one basket (pun intended) in terms of style of play when actually diff fish play differently and you've gotta learn to have diff traps for diff fish or... you're getting no chips with your fish! (pun intended again)
Thanks.. still listening/learning here..
