If you play poker tournaments of any kind, knowledge of ICM is essential for doing well especially as you get close to the bubble and into the money. This is especially true for small tournaments like 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. 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" the players' 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
+ Up to 10 players, up to 10 payouts (some calculators handle only up to 9)
+ Fast ICM algorithm
+ Simple and clean one-screen design so you can see the whole scenario easily
+ 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
Two ICM decision analyzers:
+ Call an all-in or fold?
+ Push all-in or fold?

Ratings and Reviews
If you’re a tourney reg and you don’t have this app you’re costing yourself $$. Love this app, does ICM and chip chop so you can compare amounts. Been using this for years and I have had zero issues. Must have app for tourneys.
I have used this app in two final tables to achieve a chop that provided me and the rest of the players an undisputed analysis of the true value of our chips and our potential placement. There is no doubt that a fair and equitable division of the prize monies cannot be achieved instantaneously without this ICM at the felt table. Every player should have one as it stops all angle shooters dead in their tracks. Of course I look forward to various additions to this fine program. Dan "Amuletman" Olarnick
Must Have Tool
Just found this tool. Haven't used it in real world but really wish I had it a year ago to be able to fairly award myself a better chop as chip leader with final five splitting pot. Would have got me extra $2k 😱 Ran the numbers and it seems very fair. Like I said its a must have tool.
You never know when you'll be in that fortunate spot where u really wish u had this tool so get it and be prepared for those final tables!!! (No this isn't an infomercial lol)
