What I will cover
Why heads up SNG's?To some, heads up poker is the most pure form of Texas Hold'em poker. In a heads up poker match you get to pit your strategy against one other player and look for ways to exploit each others style to see who'll come out victorious. In a heads up poker match, most hands are contested with neither player having much of a hand, most of the time. In order to be successful in these games you'll need to formulate a solid strategy to look to counter your opponent early on. My heads up SNG poker coaching is here to help you put the pieces of the puzzle together.

How To Correctly Study Poker Strategy Videos
Do not skip over this bit because too many people do not know how to correctly study poker training videos. (When you're watching our free heads up Texas Hold'em training videos make sure you are armed with a pen and paper). One thing that really sped up my learning curve and helped me develop a winning strategy was something that I call active learning. Active learning involves stopping the poker training video just at the start of what looks like an interesting hand. Now take your pen and paper and write down how you would play the hand but also write down 'why' you would play it that way. Often you can make the right move in a heads up poker game but if your reasoning is flawed then your overall strategy will likely fail. As soon as you're happy with what you've written down then continue playing the video to see what the coach did. If your play and reasoning behind it match what the coach says then move on to the next hand. If your play and/ or logic is different then at this point try to understand why. If you've been racking your brains trying to come up with a correct answer but still just don't understand the logic then make sure you go to the poker forum and post a question about it which will give the coach as well as other players and students a chance to respond which should help develop your understanding of the game and thus improve your skills (active learning!). Even if you only watch half of a poker video in this way, you will likely learn ten times as much as just having the video playing whilst not paying 100% attention.
