If you play poker tournaments of any kind, knowledge of ICM is essential for doing well especially as you get close to the bubble or make it into the money. This is especially true for small tournaments and Sit-n-Go's and satellites because you're in this situation very often.

Tournaments and cash games are very different as you approach the bubble or make it into the money. In cash games it's all about the chips, which are 1-to-1 equivalent to $’s all of the time. But in tournaments chips don't have fixed/constant value; you're trying to maximize your $ payout not your chips. This means you should *not* make decisions based on your chip equity or chip pot odds (that's cash game thinking), but on your $ payout equity and $ payout pot odds.

ICM lets you do this by "converting" chip stacks to expected $ payouts. ChipChop is an alternative popular way of doing this. Tournament Cruncher gives you both ICM and ChipChop calculators.

ICM And ChipChop Calculators, Final Table Chop Dealmaker
--------------------
+ Up to 10 players, up to 10 payouts
+ Fast ICM algorithm
+ Simple and clean one-screen design so you can see the whole scenario easily
+ Compare the ICM deal with the ChipChop deal
+ Save/load up to 6 scenarios (e.g. save the payout structures of your favorite tournaments, save and compare a few scenarios for "what if" analysis)
+ View calculation details and export to email

M & Q Ratios (And M Zone) And Number Of Big Blinds Calculator
--------------------
Your M ratio (or M number) is a measure of the health of your chip stack in relation to the cost of playing each round. This ratio to a large extent determines how you should play with your current chip stack at the current stage of the tournament. Tournament Cruncher also shows you which *M Zone* you currently fall in.

Your Q ratio describes the relation of your stack to the average stack.

Your Number of Big Blinds is of course also an important measure of the health of your chip stack.

Bubble Factor Calculator
--------------------
Bubble factor measures how big an ICM effect a given player has against another player. If your bubble factor is very close to 1, then there is very little ICM effect, and you can make decisions based pretty much on chip pot odds (as in a cash game). However if your bubble factor is significantly greater than 1, then you must make decisions based on your tournament $ equity (your ICM equity), not just on chip pot odds.

Push/Call/Fold ICM Decision Analyzers
--------------------
+ Call An All-In Or Fold?
+ Push All-In Or Fold?
