He copy and pastes the same scenario in hold em calculator and it says it's a negative ev play... He also recommended ICMIZER so I will try that one out thanks a lot.
they are both the same thing, lol. the only difference between sng wiz and icmizer is that icmizer you can fully customize the ranges, whereas sng wiz relies on sklansky chubukov ranges. which makes icmizer the best choice.
you shouldn't really be using it if you don't know what you are doing. at the end of the day it's just a calculator and is only worth the numbers you input into it. get them wrong, or get your opponents ranges wrong/edge % etc and you will get bad results.
if you want, post a few hands here and i'll discuss the things you need to consider when using it. or just get your friend to help you out. but if he recommends icmizer and thinks sng wiz is terrible, he probably doesn't know too much.
