basically just wondering what the general rule is as far as raising/limping/folding pre-flop in these kind of conditions. i had been raising with my above average and good hands but when i completely miss the flop (about, what.. 70% of the time?) my feeler bets are getting re-raised so i really have no clue where i stand in the hand. anyways, i feel like i'm rambling now..
HU is great, it's a giant game of chicken.
You should be raising super wide on the button, virtually any two suited are good for a minraise, any Ace king queen or jack, just go nuts.
Be willing to call wide and play back too with reraises, when you flat remember he's missing 70% of flops as well. Ace high or even king high can often win the hand, any piece of the board is usually good.
And as a last resort... if you feel like you're getting destroyed postflop then start shoving wider preflop and remove his post flop edge. Once he gets a 3:1 chiplead you should be willing to shove any ace or king, any pair, anything with a bit of postflop equity just push push push till you double up or die.
