Learn and practice for a poker tournament

Study and practice the most important phase of any Sit and Go Tournament using PokerStrategy.com’s free ICM Trainer Light.

  • Use learning-by-doing to improve your game in the late phase of tournaments
  • Get a feel for playing in accordance with the ICM-model
  • From beginner to intermediate in 10 lessons


ICM Trainer Light will guide you through the late phase of a Sit and Go tournament (the push or fold phase) in 10 lessons. You will be given a certain in-game situation and can decide whether you want to push (bet all your chips) or fold.

You begin with the first lesson. Once you have successfully completed it, you'll be able to move on to the next one. Every lesson has a brief description that includes the number of questions that need to be answered correctly, to be able to move on to the next lesson.

Once a lesson begins, you'll have to decide for every hand, whether you want to push (bet all your chips) or fold (give up your hand). These two are the only possible responses.

Once you have made your decision your response will be evaluated as right or wrong. You will also learn which cards you would have played exactly the same in a similar situation.

To get to the next hand, simply click the next hand button.
