Nash Equilibrium in Heads Up Poker, Applicability

In Mathematics of Poker, Bill Chen has provided approximated Nash Equilibrium Shove/Fold, and Call ranges with respect to Effective Stack Size, for Heads Up (1 on 1) No-Limit Texas Holdem poker. The next logical thought would question whether if this is practical for actual playing. It isn't likely for the significantly large sample size required, and a highly probable negative EV (Expected Value).
