How strong really is a pair heads up?
I've heard many many times that when you hit a pair heads up it's a very strong hand, and much stronger than if you were in a 3-way pot. I do feel however that in a lot of situations headsup, that I'm being bluffed of what could be the best hand, mainly because I feel someone else has a better hand.
At NL2 and NL4/5
Like, if I have 45o and the flop comes 5cKd7d and my opponent bets I may be reluctant in calling with bottom pair, and then if I do call but then on the turn comes 2c and he barrels again i'm almost always folding, but I could be well ahead of course.
This is what gets me on tilt the most, not knowing whether i'n being bluffed off a hand which is in the lead. There is plenty of times where I'll hit bottom or middle pair on the flop, call a flop bet but then fold on the turn to a turn bet, when I could well be in the lead.
