I've been playing Hold'em for a while now, and only recently had a head to head match with a friend. If there's only two of us, how do the blinds work? If he's the dealer, and I post the small blinds, and he posts the big blinds, do I then bet before the flop? How exactly does betting occur before the flop? Can someone walk me through the exact sequence of events?
Bonus question: I'm just starting to get an inkling for "position play" i.e. how to bet in relation to where you are in the deal... What's the prevailing wisdom, if any, for position play in a head-to-head match?
