My name is Max and I live in Ukraine.
First exposure to poker for about a year ago but responsible process started only 6 month ago. I play on PS i have been struggling to find a type of poker thats suits me. Last time i played MMT and now raised my bankroll to 700$ and already 2 weeks playing HU with buy-in 6$ turbo. First time i will play 6$ because i want to get experience in HU and understand psychology of players at this limit.
Main reason for which I create this blog for improve my BAD English and motivate me to play this so hard game.
I have a very important question to me, how to advise playing turbo HU at this limit? Here a lot a weak players and against them push-fold stage is very dispersion for me...

Okey let's go _ after first day:
played 9 heads-up
Today played only 5$ HU no turbo because i have good post-flop for this limit and push-fold stage is very dispersion for me.
Today had a lot juicy fish and my task was to hold them play again and again all that was required of me. Today played passively because a lot some LAG fish coming in on my table.
One losses was my call with 22 push with 88
I will playing this limit yet earn +300$ because i know a lot people who complete limit $6 with 30% ROI 1k games and at 11$ they playing at best 0% ROI. I need to understand how to play HU
Good luck with your venture... I am also playing turbo HU SNGs. and I would say quite simply stick to ABC poker, tight in the BB raise the button a lot and don't bluff too much, most players are very bad at that limit and a solid game will show a nice return. A good push/fold game is essential for turbos tho, but there are ways of achieving that... good luck...

1) Value bet on river against bluff aggressive player - MISTAKE
Value bet on river knowing that the opponent has nothing this my mistake, better game for me check-call. His overbet every time means bluff.

Last loss i was so tired and then regretted that i played, let this be a lesson to me. Just i am not yet used to play so much, heads-up quickly bored and need constant focus.
Well today day like yesterday. More play against calling-station fish and wait until the player goes to tilting and play with theme again - poker is an evil game ;]
2) Opp. LAG every time bluffing, re-raising and playing check-raise. I saving chips and my con-bet was only half pot because i scared big 3bet without kicker.
I called his bet 1) Turn with two pair he did not check 2) river i did not like his bet because every time with better hand than me his value bet much less
Today try to play 4-players heads-up sng. Now i need to create positive mood with help coffee, music and morning charging. Ouch its cold outside maybe this winter season will never come to an end, well ok i went to play good luck to me.

fun101rockets i mean it's possible but harder.
Yesterday i was very busy and i couldn't to play, played a couple sng and profit yesterday 0$, to play 4 players HU-sng was psychologically difficult. In evening i played in offline and finished at first place and got some money so little money but i was pleased. Today i have a little busy but i'll still play.

4 games 2players HU
2/2= -1$ (rake)
6 games 4players HU
4/2 = +$48.50
so today profit +47.50$
I think 4 players HU its better for me play against newbies they more tilting at the final table and now my goal is to understand this sng how to play better at the final table. As i told heads-up quickly bored even when i win
and need to take frequent breaks. Adhere to old my plan need to raise for 300$ now i have +107 won in 3 days (yesterday i can ignore) +193 need more.
Today i haven't interest hands although have one:
1) My lucky against AGRO fish and often pfr so i could't fold this hand

4 games 2players HU
1 game 4players HU
1 game 32players HU
2 place = 32$
Today profit +48.46
Not many tourneys today because i don't like play multi-table i like to play on the opponent's nerves.
32 players HU-SNG played for the variety and later will play in this very rare...at the final table was that:
1) As always very LAG fish with a wide range pfr but here he's changed himself tactic and just did call min-raise with 77 that was for me very suddenly . My limp he's every time stealing and i decided to min-raise so con-bet in this board 100%.

I want to improve my stamina and play more games per day. I think i can earn 60$-90$ per day if i can find more inspiration and time. As for me HU not much dispersion as many talking about it. I think dispersion depends on tilt ability. I got inspiration by this profit for the last 4 days and i'm already to play more. The end of the week i'll be a little busy and can't to play more
