One of the oldest and most interesting poker formats, is living its renaissance in 2021.
This year is full of high stakes duels , played by poker pros and televised by the likes of PokerGO. The entertainment of watching 1v1 poker matches , is on a whole different level. Nothing more exciting , than witnessing a poker duel. It resembles a battle between two gladiators , but instead of swords, they carry only their sharp minds to the arena.
While it is ton of fun to watch, playing heads up online, is totally differrent experience. Usually popular poker sites are full of pros. Sharks wait for their next victim, almost 24/7. When you add the high rake of most poker sites, games are almost unbeatable.
Sometimes it is fun to test your skills against solid players, but if poker is your main source of income, you should stay away from tough grinders. Especially on heads up format. Challenging sharks is boosting your ego and playing against fish, is boosting your bankroll. Decision is yours.

Most players are clueless how to play heads up. They know very little about poker strategy, GTO play and using exploitative patterns.
