      That number is the player's range - whether betting or calling. 33%. means the top 33 percent of cards (as shown in equilator software I think) - that's down to around T9o, I think?

      Your range is shown too. If you can learn what that translates to in terms of cards, you can pretty much cheat the ICM trainer to get close to 100%.

      I'm going back to turning the ranges off so I can make sure to learn them. There's a checkbox on the right hand side, closer to the bottom 'show player ranges' unclick it.

      I'd more like to know what the player edge should be set at, and why?

      This is actually a very interesting question I never got the answer to. It might be a good idea to ask this in the next coaching..

      Would it not depend on the stakes that you are playing, say for example your playing low limits ($1-$3) SnGs wouldnt you want to make the edge high because they are usually bad players having a higher edge would be better, than on the other hand when your playing higher stakes ($11-$55) the players are better so your edge would be smaller anyways. Or do I have this idea all wrong?

      hero's edge depends mostly on situations... when you have 3bb's you obv. don't have any edge... but when your thinking about re-shoving your 18bb stack you have edge so you should prolly not gamble your 18bb..

      as for the limit I actually make all my icm calculations on the lower limits without edge since you want to push really loosely on those limits since players call you tight...
