      After long search for spot for me in poker, I find out, Im good at Hu SnG.
      Is there any materials that I can study for this (PS materials or books) or the only way to be better is to post hands, that I need some help?
      Any suggestions, how many BI would be optimal?

      30-50 BI rule
      Be carrefull to play on sites that have 5% rake not 10 % at HU SNG

      I would not recomend using 30BI rule, this can be very swingy. PS recommend 50BI for regulars SnG but I think 75-100BI are more comfortable for HU SnG. But i´m no expert at this

      But if you are extremly confident in your play then 50 is maybe enough.

      how much BI its depending which limit you played before and how well you play. If you play good at micro limits for you 2$ or 6$HU its possible i think.
      Important how strong your tilt stability

      Until 20$ you can easily use 30BI BRM with 3 stop loss rule(stop session after losing 3 games in a row), IMO.

      For the lower limits if you have some discipline aggressive BRM can pay off... quite a few people play with 10 up til a point... 20-30 is OK, for the higher limits around 40+ is decent... or 16, that can work too :f_biggrin:

      just bet all of your $50 bonus at ones table. if you win you get A $100 than just keep playing at $50 buy ins. That's BRM. lol

      The HU BRM seems OK but the MTT BIs are a bit nitty to me... 100BI should be plenty... 200 is OK if you're only playing MTTs, have read many places hat 75 is enough....

      I recommend 30BI for the 2$ HU at PokerStars. The field is too easy.

      Further you should use 30-50BI.

      You should reed this book:

      Heads Up No Limit Holdem, from Collin Moshman.

      What do you think is some "decent" ROI over micro, small and medium stakes at HU SNG's? (pick whatever type you want), and how many can you play in an hour?

      I basically want to know if the lower variance (compared to 9-man sng's) drags your ROI down or not. :D
