Advice for heads up against a loose aggressive opponent
This if for heads up sngs, not a 6 table or 10 table and then we're heads up, but heads up from the get go. Okay, I know the obvious answer to playing against a loose aggressive opponent is to play tight and trap the person. However, online, I find quite a few games where the person is going to raise preflop each time, to at least a 3 bet, then the person will always raise after the flop, and I'll fold because I didn't hit. The bet is always past my odds
of drawing anything. However, if I get something good, that person will always fold knowing I actually have a hand. What I try to do is to only check good hands and hope that person raises, then I'll reraise. However, the opponent will fold, and I'll never be able to get enough chips from that person this way since it's not that often I'll get a good hand to reraise with, and because I usually fold past and future hands preflop, the chips I win get absorbed back into the opponent's blind stealing. I can't play tight enough for too long because in heads up, the blinds add up quickly. Is the only strategy to a person who will raise aggressively with almost any two cards to just pretend the blinds are high (like late game), and be prepared to go all in with cards like A10? I really want to improve my heads up game. So far, if I want to be optimistic, I can say I can win about 60% of the games, however, with the buy-in fees and variance, this isn't worth it. Any tips would be much appreciated!
