This is a discussion on How to finish Heads up SNG games within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; I get the villain down to a few big blinds but i find it hard to finish the game off. Especially if im dealt rubbish
I get the villain down to a few big blinds but i find it hard to finish the game off. Especially if im dealt rubbish cards. For example i have just played one and i got him down to a few big blinds 6 times! Admittedly the first time he outdrew me but the other times i couldnt call all ins with a 4 9. Luckily on the 6th time i killed the game off and won it.
Perhaps in not aggressive enough, how do you finish games off in this scenario?
Honestly this is something im in the process of learning and i think it massively depends on how the other player is, sometimes you get a player who will want to constantly see the flop as cheap as possible cause they want to take no risks, then you have others who will only fold or 3x-All-in pre-flop in any hand they play, once you know how they play you can adjust how aggressive and strong hand you need to play against them.
If you are down to a few blinds you probably should be using Nash
ie with 4bbs effective shove 22,A2,K2,Q2,J2,T5,T2s,96,93s,86,84s,76,74s,64s,53s
with 4bbs effective call 22,A2,K2,Q2,J2,T5,T2s,96,94s,86,84s,76,74s,64s,53s
I'm not an expert in HU, but many times in the HU we do not get those good or high cards that you want, and they give us low cards in all hands, when that happens to me I just try to be more aggressive but always being very careful, and having a good reading of my opponent, how aggressive it is, to know a deceleration of which are the cards he plays, is can help you decide how to play that HU
