      can anyone help me out here?

      i am not a strong heads-up player at all, an the only way i am getting any heads up practice is by getting heads-up in SnGs an i was just wondering if there is any other to get some experince without there 10min short bursts?

      my bankroll isnt big enough for the pokerstars 0.25/0.5 heads-up cash games.

      any help?
      thanks

      Hi,

      there are basically three options:
      1) You can try to open tables on lower limits and hope only one player sits down ( I don't recommend it since usually you only get to play very few hands until the table fills up, especially on lower limits).
      2) Move to a site that supports HU tables for lower limits (for example Betfair).
      3) Watch videos about HU-play.

      Hope this helps.

      Best regards
      Phil

      Instead of just hoping to get to top 2 in a 9man SnG, try some HU SnGs? You can get them for $1 buy-in.

      Playing HU SNG really helps out. But playing the low limits lets you meet alot of fishes. They make strange playas and thats nice , but playing SNG HU cant be compered to CG HU imo.
      If there is anything else you are wondering about you can just pm me

      What is CH HU IMO? I am not formilia with this? So u lot advice HU SnGs to get the practice in? The variance high in this? U would say at least 50 buy-ins for this type of sit an go?

      try hu sngs as the others said,even the 5-10$ BI are quite easily beatable,also u could try the no blinds increase which stars offers which is kinda like a cash game since u got the same blinds for a long time
