I don't think you played this wrong. 2 pair HU is very strong hand and slowplaying it is correct, try to make him hang himself.

He actually tried very hard to double you up, even calling w/o the right odds, but got lucky.

Your plan worked but you got rivered, won't happen every time.

looks fine to me, you got all your money in when you were a fairly big favorite then he got lucky on the river. Heads up i will almost always slow play 2 pair. Bad luck.

With a suited King-X and shortstacked, I would have raised preflop. Then on the flop, push all in (that's if your opponent calls preflop). Aggression is the key to winning heads up.

I would have raised preflop after he limped in and bet the flop to see if he was on a draw. Calling 60 off the flop is not enough considering you unlikely your gonna improve your two pair on the the hand

Opponent got it all wrong (see below) but players like this win over and over H2H, so maybe he has got it right?

You're right Rob, many times HU plays out very bizarre and it makes you wonder why. I've lost alot of them in 18 player tournies after actually setting up my opponent inducing mistakes. TBH though, at times it worked in my favor, like last night. I go HU in 18 player tourney, I have almost 19k opponent has a little over 8k. 1st 3 hands he goes all-in PF all 3 times, pissing me off in the process because I had a duece or a three every time. The 3rd time he does it I had 93, so I folded saying to myself "no matter what I have next hand, if he goes all-in PF again I'm calling". I'm dealt T4o in the SB, sure enough he goes all-in, I call. He shows A5. Flop comes 234, he hits a bycicle. I'm cursing like an animal. Then the unthinkable happens. The turn is a T, river is another 4 and I make a FH. Lmao, now he's cursing, I'm sure.

It's just strange how this happens alot that's why I'm glad you said it too, the player that makes a mistake ends up winning. I guess it must be me though, because when you look in the lobby at pokerstars in the HU matches I see many of the same players there all the time playing big money ($1000, $2000 and even $5000 HU matches) almost every night. In honesty, I've seen on TV plenty live suckouts also. So I'm not trying to say there is a pattern to this, but it is bizarre.

thats pretty sick, however you did let him limp in, with king-x suited and he limps in a nice raise would have been okay here

nah man, YOU DID GOOD HERE. You got what you wanted, you got your money in with the best hand on the turn he just got lucky and we all do at times. You were a short stack and with 2 pair on the flop you definitely don't want to scare him away on the flop because this is most likely the best chance you'll see to double up without going all in preflop at this point.

He just got lucky, period.
