I think so much of heads up play depends on the established dynamic, particularly when it comes to completing in the SB versus raising.
Therefore, when we have a monster, I think what we do in the SB should most depend on what we have been doing. If we’ve been raising, we should raise the size that we have been which would ideally be 2x at the 20 big blind stack depth we have here.
However, if we’ve been completing the small blind, then we should also be following suit with that when we have a monster hu hand like QQ.
We want to make sure we’re balancing, meaning doing the same things with our strong and weak hands—when it is versus an opponent that we need to keep guessing. Balancing is particularly important versus other regs, and in that situation just completing with a monster when you have been raising other hands would be a mistake in my opinion.
