Chris Edwards, Heads-Up cash game coach at PokerVIP.com Chris Edwards (AKA Floppynuts09) is a heads-up cash game specialist, playing anywhere from 50nl to 400nl. He started his poker career in 2009, where he occasionally played both live and online. Although his real poker career didn’t begin until late 2010, where he began watching training sites and working harder on his game. He began grinding 6max SNG’s until he had a bankroll large enough to play the lowest heads-up cash game available on Full Tilt Poker. As you can see below, he spent a lot of hands playing 50nl, but eventually moved up to 100nl and 200nl with immediate success. This was until he lost his entire bankroll when Black Friday hit. Within a few months of waiting, he decided to put the remaining funds he had onto Pokerstars. Playing heavily under-rolled, he managed to grind 50nl successfully with the skill he had acquired on FTP. Within 2 months, he was playing 200nl with huge success. Chris has won over $30,000 playing poker, and is winning more and more by the week. He wins at a massive 10BB/100 and is one of the hottest players at the low-mid stakes heads-up games at the moment.

Maybe I am a nit but are you really considering raising on that last hand? I think that is the most standard call you could ever find in a million years. You are just CLEARLY not gonna fold KK when you set it on the end after you 3 bet and chck-called the A high flop. But your range looks like, well exactly what it is. Your opponent has got to put you on a min of two pair here and is probably nearly never bluffing. How much of what value bets vs two pair do you beat with your set? Well, you beat worse sets and maybe Aces up (which would be kinda thin hear IMO). Fine, call. If you raise and get called I think your just dead. Just f\'n dead. You can so easily have TT, KK in this spot and will nearly always have had something that became two pair a straight or a flush by the riv that I may even check top two back if I\'m villain (maybe EVEN bttm set) What would call you if you raised? Worse sets? What sets? QQ/JJ flat you pre-flop HU? I don\'t know but for me this call is super trivial. Now I\'ve got to watch the last vid just to see what you did.lol. If you raise and get called your dead though in my honest opinion. When you started talking about how interesting the spot was I thought you were considering folding, not raising. And I wouldn\'t fold, but we don\'t exactly have the nuts here either. TRIVIAL CALL IMHO

I am going to turn my buddy on to these vids. He\'s been \"playing poker\" for years but he\'s never really tried to get good at it. I have tried to explain things to him but I think it took watching a vid like this to make me realize that there are people who really just don\'t understand some of the things (many in these vids) that we take for granted. I\'m talking to him about floating and barreling and, well a real example; he defended BB with JTs and I was explaining to him after he checked and folded to a c-bet that check-raising light with JsTs on 9s6c2d would have been better than check folding because that flop doesn\'t hit villains range very hard and we have 2 overs, runner-runner straight and back door flush draws and we will have like 21 cards to barrel on the turn if we do get called...blah blah blah. I watched this and the last vid and thought \"this is what my buddy (actually cousin) needs to watch, not my rants on check-raising light to barrel bluff your stack off at low stakes against fish with no fold buttons.
I am a FIRM believer in starting off with HU play for beginners and then learning short handed and eventually FR but I guess now I\'m just rambling. Is this going anywhere for someone who\'s already winning at the micros and super low (like 10nl) stakes? Or is this just really for beginners? Should I bother watching part 3 if I already know what a range merge is and how to operate pokerstove/flopzilla? No disrespect intended I think this vid would be great for a newbie but does it go deeper? I only have about 3 hours a week I make myself watch vids and get on forums, is this a good use of my time (assume already watched one and am 1/3 into part two, should I finish it up or no?)

Is this new or was it added two years ago? Does that \"lvl 1\" and \"2 years ago\" mean he joined two years ago or the vid has been up two years?
