      Hi, I tried ICM Trainer Light and found interesting situation.
      I hope It's just a mistake but I'd like to be sure :)


      Screen is from lesson one. I tried few times again and it appears when hero is CO. Why A7s and A6s is out of range here?
      Beginners like me, who are trying to follow theese ranges can be confused...



      Sorry if it's allready posted but I didn't found it

      Show us whole picture- how many players left how many chips each have etc. since that matters a lot for decision!

      here it is, but I don't know why there is A8s+ and A5s in ranges but A7s and A6s not
      maybe i didn't describe it exactly in first post, sorry for that

      Hello kennyxx,

      The reasoning behind A5s being included while A6s is not comes from the fact that A5s actually has a better equity against a random hand - than A6s does. This stems from the higher connectivity of the hand which allows more straight possibilities. A7s on the other hand does have a higher equity against random - yet not against an opponents probable calling range.

      Basically A5s has a better equity against good hands (With which the opponent might call) -so more "suckout value" than A6s/A7s do. This comes from its connectivity :)

      Best regards,
      SoyCD

      I think it's the same reason as before

      Yep, its the same situation as before. A6 is simply worse against the opponent's calling range than the other hands.
