fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero ???
I don't see BB calling with much more than premiums he was good and tight, sb didn't matter much imo but with these guys so short is this a fold?"
Two guys responded with very cut and dry answers of it's close but it looks like a shove, and it made me wonder how people are using ICM and how closely it determines your shoving hands?
Personally I've always used ICM as a guideline more for calling spots then for shoving.
I find the many variables around the table especially at a Final Table play a way bigger role in my decisions than ICM.
I'd love to hear thoughts and explanations on interperetations of using ICM, when and how you use it and anything else.
