So after blowing almost my entire bankroll, I want to start over again ... I want to specialize in HU because I love the action, and I really feel this is my best game. Now I'm just wondering what type of game I should play. I prefer playing cash games, but the rake at the lower limits at HU is absurd. Still I have a 60% rakebackdeal with a certain pokersite so I believe I can play HU cash games at lower limits without losing to much.
I'm not a really good sng player, but many people have told me that HU sng would be better to grow my bankroll, and then when I'm rolled to play 50NL HU I should switch to cash game.
So what would be your advise? Maybe any advise on HU cash or sng's strategy's ...?

Well HU fo me is a miss, the game goes too quick and 1 BB tends to end a session for me. First where did you lose your BR, at SH FR or HU. To build a roll id say avoid HU IMO. Play micro FR or micro SH to build a roll. In each you should be able to take it to HU and have a better read on thier hand. Sorry you lost most of your BR, keep your head high and GL to you. Id say if your going the HU route go for the SnG. Not much help sorry. But you shouldent be playing with the thought of "losing too much" . cant give any HU stratergy but for SnG ABC works well. start tight and loosen up as the BB raises, short and simple.
If you want a nice read on SnGs I have a lot of info I can pass on but cant here, if on twitter and if you want tweet me (PM) email ad and im happy to send.

All players i have seen with 2000$ or more loss , always play HU, 20$ HU on ftp.
I only play hu to improve my skill in sngs , i think nobody shouldn't build a bankroll by playing hu.
Personnaly, i turn the BRM 50$ no deposit bonus into 500$ only by playing micro sh sngs and i always play overrolled ( 100 buy-ins at least ) , now i can play 5 sngs at the same time, and seriously this way , you don't need high limits to make decent profit.
