We compare different SU(2) Polyakov loop actions with data from full two-color QCD simulations around and above the critical temperature [1,2]. The effective actions are motivated by combined strong coupling and hopping expansions. We extract the effective couplings of our models by matching Polyakov loop distributions and correlators from the efective models with those from full two-color QCD simulations.
