      I'm still pretty much a begginer, but i took a shoot at nl25/50 heads up.
      I was very lucky , made 10$ into 90$ in ten minutes, but I realized that I wasnt playing very well, couse I sucked out on my oponents couple of times, so I stoped.
      I think that HU is the most dificult game to play but I havent find any articles on this site about it, so any strategy oriented answer would be nice.

      Silver article in sng, "playing final table", in the end there is somewhat about headsup.
      To make it short, it mostly depend on reading your opponent.

      heads up is definitely not for beginners.

      Right, heads up is not the right way to learn the game. And i suggest to stick to the bankroll management, which means you should have about 50 stacks for the current limit if you want to play heads up.

      is there any site where the rake is low enough to make NL100 (or lower) profitable?

      I don´t know, but i think on Full Tilt the rake is let´s say payable.^^

      Articles and books about HU are difficult to write, because there are nor clear strategies in HU, since it has a lot to do with reading your opponent and gameflow. Therefore articles are quite wage.
      I don´t know of books about it. Maybe we will implement a HU section in the future.

      or is there any site where the players are bad enough to make NL100 profitable?

      on all sites the players are bad enough to make nl100 HU profitable . but i dont sugest to anyone playing low stakes HU without a rake back deal . you just give too much to the casino if you do so .
      and a 40 - 50 bi for the limit is minimum because swings can go up and down preaty fast .
