At higher stakes play is more aggressive. And heads up aggression is the key to success. You can't wait for monsterhands in that format.

I guess most players at that level will play with a HUD. So yes, he has a program that can show him the statistics.

That´s right. Try to improve your skills playing HU.

I think he meant quad As, that's how I read he's sentence.

And yes, high stakes (especially $2/$4 +) is very aggressive and very different game than .05/.10 - it's much hard to get a 'read'

playing high blinds ( according to your bankroll size) is always a stupid thing to do.
you can better play a level too low than too high!

@wizzyzim
almost all of these programs have an evaluation period (30 days generally) during which you can use these software for free (sometimes with some restrictions)

so you can have a try and then decide to invest your money or not

It's mathematically correct to open up every hand HU regardless of what you hold

yeah, it's true what keefburtons is saying... your hitrange is so much higher in HU then FR or shorthanded.
