      Congratulations!

      Once you get heads-up, the tournament structure doesn't matter any more. So, STTs are good practice, and the STT article on heads-up push/fold play applies to MTT play.

      Most MTT players are not used to playing heads-up, and many make typical mistakes of players new to heads-up play. Many players do not adjust their hand evaluations and are too tight. One rule of thumb I use is that when the stacks are 20 bb or more, I raise T5o and 84s from the small blind heads-up. With under 20 bb, it is usually right to decrease the size of your raise, but also to tighten up slightly since you won't get a positional advantage postflop if you are all-in.

      That looks like good advice. Its pretty impressive that you edited your post over 1200 times to get the wording just right!
