      One of my biggest leaks playing the 9mans is my calling ranges for allin shoves is too tight at times. Can anyone recommend a good practice to constantly work at these ? Is there any videos that can cover on how to work on this away from the tables ?

      Thanks

      Thanks. I had come across it before, but never watched it. Will pick it up next month when i hit my silver status again ;)

      @becky1464

      With the ICM trainer, is it more to learn ranges from its repetivness, or are you looking over the ranges as well to memorize ? I find the lite version a little simplified, but will give the other version a crack too.

      Thank you all.

      ICM trainer does asume that your opponent shoves/calls a set range. In most situations that will not be the case and you would be better off training with SNG Wizard. If you chose to train with SNG Wizard you need to be aware that you NEVER should use the preset ranges (they suck). It might be hard in the beginning, but it also will give you a good feeling for how to figure out ranges.

      Your opponent putting it in with a worse hand is the only way one can make profit in poker.
