Heads up strategy applied to MTTs

Heads up in MTT

All advices provided in the heads up section do apply. The only problem is that when you reach a heads up in a MTT fighting for the first seat, blinds are usually so high that you have little room to manoeuvre. Hands selection, aggression and luck are key.  But a key idea must be kept in mind : no starting hand has less than 30% chance to win against a random hand. Considering this a simple rule arises : when the sum of blinds + antes reach 10% of one of the two stacks it would be suicidal to pass any hand but really the worst ones. If you reach a situation where you have 10% of one of the two stacks in the pot pre-flop and you see that your opponent is not making the correct adjustments by witnessing that he is giving away the SB…you have an opportunity to seize and should go all-in for all coming hands. If you have equal stacks when you start doing this, you just need to succeed 2 or 3 times to get a decisive advantage. Its not pretty but it is how finales are won.
