If you’ve been playing poker seriously for a while, particularly Spin and Go tournaments or Heads-Up Hyperturbo SNGs, you’ve likely already heard of ICMIZER, a powerful poker study tool used by thousands of poker players around the globe.
ICMIZER is widely considered one of, if not the, most intuitive and user-friendly poker training software available on the market.
Having recently released its second iteration, ICMIZER 2 – which ushers in the game-changing addition of SNG Coach – ICMIZER has managed not only to help poker players maximize the time they spend “in the lab”, but has turned the often tedious process of developing a strong understanding of push/fold ranges into a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Because, let’s be honest, regardless of how beneficial we know poker study to be, most players still struggle with finding the motivation to sit down and spend hours upon hours running valuable but unglamorous, equity calculations. However, thanks to the introduction of SNG Coach (see more below), plugging your poker push/fold strategy and ICM leaks has never been more fun!
ICMIZER – Poker Equity Calculator
At the heart of ICMIZER lies its aesthetically pleasing and easy-to-navigate poker hand equity calculator, an intuitive tool that makes finding mathematically-based solutions to every push/fold scenario an absolute breeze. Simply input the details of the hand (or paste a complete hand history with the click of a button), set your opponents’ hand-ranges and click “calculate” and you’ll instantly know exactly how profitable or unprofitable the shove that cost you your tournament life was.
- Don’t know how wide to shove on the button with 8 Big-Blinds?
- click > click > click > now you know.
- Not sure how wide to call against an extreme-shortstack’s open-shove blind-versus-blind?
- click > click > click > now you’re sure.
- Uncertain which hands make good bluff-shoves against your opponent’s limping range?
- click > click > click > now you’re certain.
ICMIZER 2 – Hand History Replayer
A new addition to the ICMIZER program, the Replayer is a sleek-looking program for replaying Holdem hands you’ve played in tournaments. The key advantage of ICMIZER 2 Replayer is that it shares the same list of hands with ICMIZER. Thanks to this shared list you can forward hands from Replayer to ICMIZER to analyze them, or send a hand back from ICMIZER to Replayer to review how the hand progressed.
ICMIZER 2 – SNG Coach
By far the most exciting feature of ICMIZER 2, SNG Coach combines the thrill of an exciting video-game with the benefits of spending hours upon hours working on improving your poker push/fold strategy.
From the ICMIZER website:
“SNG Coach is the much-anticipated program using a realistic game setting and ICM quizzes to help you master Push/Fold play. Covering all of the different aspects of Push/Fold, SNG Coach provides truly personalized training and answers the key questions you would ask a real coach: “What areas should I work on?” and “How should I work on those areas?”.
The Coach shows your current proficiency across a range of skill zones so you can decide what areas to focus on next. Unlike the quizzes you may have seen before, SNG Coach adapts to your skill level. By tailoring question difficulty to the player’s level, it can be equally effective for a novice or a pro.”
