murrdog, I love heads up poker. So much so, that other forms are really boring for me these days (especially live full ring!). I found that my poker skills were built up far faster starting out in heads up than friends that played tournaments. While they were learning to play a select few hands in a select few positions, I was learning how to play all sorts of hands, strong and weak, in both positions, with a lot of postflop play as well. Playing so many hands in such a short amount of time really built up my hand reading skills and gave me experience in playing so many different situations postflop.
aCutAbove, that's awesome, congrats! It's hard to win a heads up tournament, imagine you're 50% to win one match and there are 64 players... that's 6 wins needed to take it down, less than a 2% chance of winning!
Feels so good to take it down though, I only ever won fun private type tournaments (some serious). Never won any of the regular ones (like the Sunday PS $215 or the WCOOP/SCOOP HU events).
