Monday Quick Thought - HU Poker For Newbies?

Quick thought time! Today is the National Day of Hungary - Stunt Plane races over the river Danube (all of 20 meters from our flat!), Concerts, Fireworks and much eating and drinking ahead!!

This thought came from a conversation with my fiance while doing some 'steps' at the weekend... She said - "those donkeys might do well heads-up, what with reraising any part of the flop"... good point!!

At a full table playing A-6 off on an ace high flop is a receipe for getting stacked (well soon enough at least). Heads-up top pair is actually a very strong hand... of course there is far more to it than that - position, hand reading, bet sizing and mixing up your play for example. Thought that the basic logic was sound though!!

Cheers, Mark
