Hi all,

I decided to check how close are the results from SAGE and Nash equilibrium charts, and ICM trainer suggestion.

Here they are:

Cards: 6
4

Blinds: 300/600

Effective stack: 4360

Position: SB
ICM Trainer correct action:

push 64.4%, that includes 64s (marginally)

SAGE: R=7, PI=18, PI needed=26, result=

easy fold
Nash: push with less than 16.3 bb, that is indeed the case,

easy push
I know the values cannot be the same, but I didn't think they can be so controversial. Particularly, Nash chart and SAGE chart give very different suggestions. ICM trainer was somewhere in the middle with a marginal push.

Actually, SAGE would fold 64s even with 2 bb effective stack! Sounds a bit unreasonable for me. Also, SAGE does not account for connectors. I.e., 54s would even have a lower PI=16 and would be a fold even with 1 bb stack (what the hell?).

Could anyone explain this to me please?

EDIT: It's also still a mystery for me why ICM trainer is here at all. It generates HU situations, you can select HU-only mode there, but chips value is proportional to $ value in HU (there're no bubble situations where $EV is much less than cEV).
