ICM Calculator for calculating final table chops
Yes I did try the search feature on the forum before starting this thread.
Question: What ICM Calculator do any of you use for calculating final table chops? (ie. like on PokerStars seeing as their Admin. won't chop with ICM). Last night I went on a couple sites & tried out two of them to calculate a final table chop (a table I was railing that a CC member was on   a micro table on Stars, 3 players left). I ended up getting different numbers from each of the calcs. & thought this was pretty odd (yes I punched in the #'s correctly  prizepool/chipstacks). So.. I'm wondering which one to go with &/or what ones you folks use.

Hm, odd. Shouldnt be too hard writing one yourself.
Perhaps one is numerical, and one is mathematical. edit: For just 3 people I dont think you really need any calculator. Its easy enough to do the calculations in your head.

I figured it'd easier to just plug numbers into the calc., & hit 'calculate'? tks Wizz.

It baffles me that PS still don't offer an ICM calculator at the final table and stick with chip/chop. Main event of WCOOP and they don't even offer the players ICM deal, just put a chip/chop out there to start discussions with.
I just type in ICM calculator and use one off the internet that comes up on google.

It would be interesting to see the two different results you got from the two different calculators. Perhaps its just a numerical fault that got magnified. There are some famous cases when that can happen pretty fast. Like the Vandermonde matrix or the Hilbert matrix. Or when you have tiny decimals.

I'll just stick with Chillin411 I guess.

It would seem that the obvious thing to do would be to run the same numbers through a couple of different calculators and see if you can 'prove' that one is more accurate.
You haven't provided the figures or results or I would have had a go myself
