I haven't bought any but have trialled ICM Trainer and Equilab.

ICM is particularly good.

What are the actual functions of these items? I'm not familiar with any of these software packages and don't know what expectations to have or what to even look for in them. I mean do they count cards, track hands or show hand probability based on previous hands? Just curious and would appreciate any feedback you can provide. Good Luck!

I use Holdem manager version 1 for now and I like it so far, because I can analyze my hands and also check my poker leaks and try to correct them if I can. Smile

I guess it depends on what facet of poker you specialize in. If you're a SNG grinder, definitely ANY tool that helps you study and learn ICM is absolutely pricelss.

If you're a cash grinder, Leak Buster is excellent.

Personally I use both PT3 AND HEM2. I hadn't used PT3 for a long time, but their support for Zoom is currently better than HEM2.

HEM is better overall I think, due to the packaged software you get, as well as stability.

Hi guys!!

I use: ICM trainer, Equilab, SnG Wizard and HM (soon HM2 is time to change). Before the Rush come to my poker life i used Table Ninja. Spend money in software is EV+++++.

@bullettooth1: sure is the most important reason. In a world when almost all the winner/regs use soft we must use it!

Independent Chip Model (ICM) is to do with SNG's and MTT's.

It essentially is a trainer you can use to learn when you should be shoving all-in, in what spots and with what hands based on your chip stack as the chips you have in any tourney is equivalent to equity of said tourney.

So if you have 4000 chips of a 10000 chip total SNG, you have 40% of the chips available - therefore you are a large favourite to win (assuming the others have around 1500 each).

Their equity is 15%, therefore they are not favoured to come first when compared to your stack.

It also calculates pot equity, and the hand ranges opponents might have.

It's quite a complicated theory in some respects but thats a small breakdown which hopefully make sense. Essentially you can play 1000's of hands without spending a penny learning what the correct decisions are in any given situation so that when you play for real money you are making +EV decision nearly all the time.
