      i play some heads up ( six max too). it isnt the easiest way . rake its big at low stakes and donwsings can be deadly . the good think is all small stakes players are bad at hu so if you have some skill can be profitable but i dont recomend it if you are just a nl 10 with a 200 br .
      stay and play fr and then 6 max and try to understand and play the game ABC corectly and then try changing to hu wich needs much more skill then fr or heads up and it is much more player dependent

      Think about this... Assuming $2.20/match

      You win 2 games, then you lose 2( Rake kills your profit and puts you to a net loss)

      You lose 4 games($8.80)
      You win 5 games($9)
      Total games- 9, net profit- $0.20....

      You win 60 games($108)
      You lose 40 games($88)
      Total games- 100, net profit- $20

      Only make long term profit if you can win atleast 10-20 games more than you lose to end up with a small profit, unless you go higher stakes where just winning 1 more game than losing can put you in a great spot.
