Opponents range + ICM

      Just wondering how I should adjust my push or calling ranges depending on how loose or tight the opponent is? Especially when it comes down to the final 2.

      What is confusing me about it is there are 2 important points. If a player plays loose I have less fold equity, but I have more "win" equity... and visa versa... so which takes priority? And how to I work out how much to adjust?

      Tricky question due to ICM factor in SnGs. When it comes down to final 2, there is no ICM involved, it's purely cEV decisions, so it's a bit easier there. Usually people playing micro/low stakes don't call as loose as they should and we can often push a very wide(even any 2) range for 10bb or less. Nash is good starting strategy vs regs. When facing fish, I will deviate from those charts though as we have an edge over them and hence- should play exploitable strategy.

      I suggest you post some example hands in the hand evaluation forums so we can discuss the particular situation in details.
