HU is such a different game that this invitation might be way premature.
You will find a lot of folks who will nay say play money poker. I recommend it. Set yourself a goal of 1 million Play Chips. Getting anywhere near that goal will show you so much about your approach, and teach you so many things about the game, that those "don't bother with Play Money gaming" folks argument falls flat. I maintain that the ONLY thing play money poker can not teach you is how to play with scared money. And no one should be playing with scared money every. BTW, this real/play money discussion has never been solved in my 8 years here at CC.
If you are filthy rich, and can afford to throw a buy-in of real money
down the drain every session for a year, then by all means, go ahead and do it. You will become a favorite amongst regular players and you will improve simply by osmosis.
At the highest levels of play money poker, you will find decent enough poker for FREE, with ample entertainment value, and with study you will improve or find this really isn't your game.
