About Heads Up Poker

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (wikipedia.org)

Heads up poker is a form of poker that is played between only two players. It might refer to either: A) a game that started out with just two players, or B) a game where only two players remain at a table or in a hand that originally had more than two players.

The rules of heads of poker are the same as in a game with more players, but the strategy employed is typically different from a multihanded game. Since only two players take part in the hand, the chance of having the best hand is much higher than in a multihanded game, which causes the game to become more aggressive than normal. Bluffs for example become easier to pull off in a heads up game since it is only neccesary to bluff a single opponent in order to win the pot, whereas in a multihanded game there is a greater risk of someone having a big hand that cannot be bluffed.
