HEADS UP POKER
There will always be an element of luck involved in heads up poker.
However, as the saying goes: "The more you practice, the luckier you will get".
Playing heads up poker requires a completely different strategy and mind set to the game than playing a full table with 8 to 10 players on it.
Many poker players love heads up play because they are constantly in the action and get to play way more hands than they normally would in a regular game.

Hands containg an Ace with any other card
(A-3) is a solid hand in heads up play.
Very often, either you or your opponent will hit the flop, so the Ace card will give you the best hand at that stage.
A general strategy for heads up play is to raise with any hand that contains an ace, a pair and any to cards over nine.
Call with any straight combinations down to
5-4, any straight flush combinations with no more than one gap (9-7s) down to 5-3s and any cards suited with kings(K-3s).
The skill involved in heads-up play is to know when to push and when to hold, when to raise and when to fold.
Try to trap your opponent when you have great cards by merely calling and avoid being trapped yourself by folding at the right time.
Slow play flops that you hit.
Constantly apply pressure on your opponent.
Re-raise when you think your badly beaten (bluffing) or when you think the other player is bluffing.
Bet high with a hand that is not already made, but has some outs.
"An aggressive player's fortune is shaped by the cards that he runs into, and not the cards he holds himself".
Play your opponent, not the cards.
