Colin Moshman’s book Heads-Up No-Limit Holdem covers heads up play very well. The book isn’t directed at sit and go play in particular, but does discuss tournament play in some sections and is an excellent resource for understanding the deep stacked early portions of a heads up tournament.

The best sites we have found for Heads Up Sit and Go players

Players in the United States really only have one good option, the Merge network. FeltStars, our favorite Merge network skin offers 35% rakeback and a generous VIP program if you join through this link. You can use the bonus code FOX150 on your first deposit to get a 150% bonus up to $750 too! Even non-US players will find the heads up play much softer on the Merge network than on most other sites because the players from the United states have nowhere else to go, while the serious grinders from other countries are all playing on larger sites.

Exercise caution playing heads up tournaments above the $20 level on the largest sites as you will often find the tables full of very solid players waiting for whoever sits down. These players know each other and will not play against each other because they know there is no money to be made playing each other, so they sit at separate tables waiting for fish. Even if you play very well there is no reason to play with other strong players, so playing on a smaller site is usually more profitable than playing on a large site like PokerStars or Party Poker.
