re: Poker & Something I don't understand in SnG Power Tools...
ICM calculators like SNG power tools, don't take into account the future blind concerns, It cant look into the future, it will only look at this one spot and tell you if shoving or folding gives you the most equity long term. It's one of the shortcomings, but we can adjust it.
Go into 'edit' then into 'minimum edge' in both situations we can lower our edge to around -.35 and -.45 respectively. It's one of more advanced concepts of ICM, but basically by lowering our 'edge' here it will widen the ranges given as it can then take into account the future blind concerns.
Other than that, with the info put into the calculator, these ranges are fine, Although, in both examples the calling ranges of the bigger stacked villaisn is most probably wider than that. We should have 0 fold equity here, but against donks, we might have a little.
What folding allows us to accomplish, is A) letting the other shortstack get it in with the other two. B) by folding we are obviously commited to calling in the BB, (in the second example anyway) but, it helps us get heads up, if we shove, were most likely getting called in one, if not two spots (collusion etc). by folding and going with whatever hand in the BB, most probably the CO and button folds and sb shoves, thus, we get heads up and a bigger chance to take the pot down.
