ICMIZER 3.13.0 – Practice Pre-Final table, Bubble or Middle MTT strategy in SNG Coach

by Q.

In ICMIZER 3.13.0 update, we've added new MTT stages in SNG Coach quizzes. Now, players can practice push/fold strategy not only at the final table but also at the pre-final table, during the high-pressure bubble stage, or middle stage of a multi-table tournament. You can still use Chip EV training for the early stage of MTTs.

Now SNG Coach allows you to practice and polish your skills in all important MTT situations and utilizes full power of ICMIZER MTT mode for ICM calculations.

What's new in SNG Coach?

These changes have been made to all MTT tournaments available in the SNG Coach (including Progressive Knockout tournaments).

SNG Coach – let this push/fold instructor personally train you in the different preflop situations, with a game-like user experience and fun FGS or ICM quizzes. Finally you will get answers to questions like “What area of my game should I focus on the most?” and “How do I improve it quickly?”

SNG Coach evaluates your current player level in a range of areas and tells you which ones need the most improvement. You can also see your progress compared to thousands of other players in this global leaderboard.

For every training, SNG Coach uses smart algorithms to generate realistic hand situations that you may face in the selected type of tournament. For the generated setup, SNG Coach offers you 4 different hands to either Push or Fold.

SNG Coach always tailors question difficulty to your progress and current skill level. What is the question difficulty? The closer a hand gets to the borderline where the Push EV and Fold EV are both approaching zero, the more difficult it is to decide between them.

In the answer analysis mode, SNG Coach reveals the optimal plays for each of the 4 hands. It also shows you the hero’s entire push range and your opponent’s push range for calling an all-in.
