Playing heads-up is the nearest you will ever acquire to feeling like you’re playing Russian roulette with Christopher Walken in the movie Deer Hunter. There may well not be a weapon to your skull, except going head to head at the poker table is a great stress situation.

And should you can not conquer this element of the game then there’s no possibility that you will be able to pull off your dream win, like American Chris Moneymaker.

Moneymaker busted opposition out via several web-based satellite tournaments on his method to winning the WSOP Principal Event in Sin City in ‘03, gathering 3.6 million dollars when he bumped out his last challenger on the final table. Neither Moneymaker nor this year’s winner, Australian Joe Hachem, had participated in main US tournaments prior to but both proved that as well as playing the cards they were skilled at bullying an opponent in individual combat.

Heads-up is significantly like a game of chicken – you don’t need the fastest car or, in this case, the best hand. The nerves to stay on target and not deviate from the line as soon as the pedal has hit the metal are far extra crucial qualities. This crazy attitude could have you into trouble if you crash your Route 66 racer into a King Kong pick-up truck, except without it you may perhaps as well walk away from the table just before you even lay down your first blind.

The most crucial thing to remember is that you do not require the best hand to succeed; it does not make a difference what cards you receive dealt if the other individual folds. If they throw in their ten-eight and you are seated there with an eight-six you still get the chips. In heads-up you are able to justifiably contest any pot with just an individual court card and almost any pair is worth pumping.
