A Guide to the Networks That Offer Heads Up SNGs

Update August 2011 - The guide is now out of date.  While many of the descriptions are accurate or close to accurate, significant changes have happened in the industry.  For example, at the time of this update, Full Tilt (previously 2nd largest online poker room) is down and not operating poker games.  PokerStars, is still the largest poker room, but has lowered rake for heads up sngs and has also inserted hyper turbo heads up sngs, a new, faster, shorter stacked structure.

If you are looking for the best rakeback/signup deals for poker rooms that offer heads up sngs, check out our Deals Page.  If you have any questions about which poker room is right for you, or any questions in general about where to sign up, contact us and we will be happy to give you advice.
