heads up poker is the end of the tournament or SnG a good recomendation would be study all the players of the final table and then in the heads up you will know what kind of player is the rival so it will be easy to win
I will not indicate a book, but a very important tip: After my thousands of hundreds of hands that I played heads up, I came up with a pretty basic structure of how HU matches should be played in the beginning before any specific adjustment for the opponent. To begin with, you should open 100% of your hands on the button, yes up to 27o. That is because of two reasons: # 1 we are going to make an immediate profit if our opponent plays very tight out of position and # 2 we want to force him to Throwing many hands out of position against us soon we can use our positional advantage to overpower it. Open 100% of the hands will also lead to tilt many people to do stupid things, more often drastic adjustments against us. So the structure for pre-flop position is to open every hand on the button up to 3x the blinds.
