ICM vs Blind Stealing?
Hey gang, long time no see. I've been busy lately, but I have managed to get a new computer, and even PT4, so I've been screwing around with their ICM calc somewhat.
I've tried to review some hands on my own, and my freakin nit computer is telling me to fold AQs 6 handed and all this garbage, fold AKo to a min raise etc...
LOL I'm joking in my description, I know there is value in ICM calcs, but those examples are real still...
I mean, ICM stuff is often far from intuitive, so I'm wondering how much weight to put into this stuff. Esp. as far as blind stealing is concerned, in the 14-20 BB range, we should still be raising Q10s in LP, eh?
I've also been playing a lot of DONs, and I think the ICM calc just freaks out there, and goes into rock nit mode
And then, with 3 bet shoving etc, re stealing, we dont give too much credence to ICM do we? Just go off VPIP and PFR?
Or is it the opposite at micro stakes? Many players are willing to call loose and gamble, (also fyi restealing never never happens at the microstakes, and it never works on other players anyhow lol)
Basically I'm wondering how to use the ICM calc while reviewing
