Hunter Bick: Crushing Small Stakes HU (Member Review): Part 8 -- Released 05/31/2012
As we near the end of the match, the opponent starts playing more predictably and is not making any big bluffs or plays. This is typical for most players who have entered the zone of mental fatigue, but its important to be be able to recognize it and capitalize on it.
Shane does just that and wins several significant pots by keeping the pressure on as the opponent repeatedly shows weakness and little willingness to fight for pots. There's one very interesting hand where Shane mis-clicks preflop and 4-Bets a weak hand, but he's the got the button and that's often what really matters in a big heads-up pot.
No matter what, its always critical to fight for the big pots in a heads up match. You can't just give up on the hand when there's a lot of chips in the middle, as it will cost you a lot of money in the long run.
