Classic 9-max Sit'n'Go, 50/30/20 payouts
100/200-25 blinds, 3 players
Hero (BB): 3,550
Preflop: Hero is BB with A7s
BTN folds, SB raises to 3,300 and is all-in, Hero ?
Set up this hand in ICMIZER (step 1), as we've explained in the previous section. At this hand history, FGS depth needs to be set to 5 because it's a recommended value for 3 players.
Let's get and interpret the results. Click ICMIZE to find the optimal calling range for Hero on the BB against the SB optimal push and to see what the optimal strategy versus an opponent who plays optimally looks like.
We see that Hero's optimal calling range is calculated as 22%, and his profit with A7s call is 1.02% of the prize pool.
Let's imagine that the player on SB is very tight, and his pushing range is 30%. So, we need to change his pushing range from 53% to 30%. To do that, we need to open the range editor of his range.
To open the range editor of the player on SB, click on his pushing range with the right mouse button.
Also, you can open the editor by clicking on the range with the left mouse button and clicking on the Edit button then.
In the range editor control, we can edit the range with the slider located at the bottom of the hand's table.
Also, you can edit the range by entering a range weight as a percentage in the text box. You can set the range to 30% best hands by entering "30" (no quotes).
In the range editor control, you also can use the individual weights control. If you have a particular hand selected, you can change the percentage of the hand in the range.
To use this quicker and more efficiently, we recommend using the mouse wheel button. If you rotate the wheel, you can edit the weight of the hand. In ICMIZER 3, Nash ranges are calculated using mixed strategies, which means that in the solution, you will sometimes find hands that are not always 100%. Here we can see that some hands are just feeling a little bit percent out of 100 percentage square:
To make using this quicker and more efficient, you can use Hand Weight Bucket Tool. Click on the bucket icon, set the needed weight with a slider, and apply this weight for a group of hands just by holding down the left mouse button.
You can also apply adjusted weight for the particular hand by clicking on any hand in the push/fold table when the Hand Weight Bucket is pressed.
So, after you changed the SB's pushing range from 53% to 30%, click on the Hero's calling range with the left mouse button to find the best response range for Hero on the BB against the SB's edited pushing range. And to see what the optimal strategy versus an opponent who pushes just 30% looks like.
Now we see that Hero's best response calling range is calculated as 11%, and his profit with A7s call vs 30% SB pushing range is -0.21% of the prize pool. Hero's A7s is not good for a call already.
To return ranges to optimal ranges for all players, you need to click on the "Reset locks" button and click on "ICMIZE".
