      Hi guys,

      I just got the ICM trainer and the thought occured to me. Does it help to practise like your playing in a tournament?

      You are playing only with good cards especially early on because you get more aggressive as the tournament goes which is bad cause you take more chances.

      Hello Odieone,

      Yes the ICM trainer is there to help you train for the lategame phase of a tournament, once the blinds have gone up. Its all about using your stack size, and the money-bubble effect to put pressure on your opponents in the push or fold phase.

      Early on in a tournament you play very tight and in the push or fold phase you start pushing according to ICM. Its quite a complex, but very intersting subject ;)

      Best regards,
