Pav just added a new bonus video at the end of the course, covering the stone bubble of one of the highest-stakes tournaments in the world.
The Bonus Video covers a scenario in the Super High Roller Bowl VIII, with five players remaining and four payout spots available. The payout table looks like this:
- 1st – $2.76 million
- 2nd – $1.68 million
- 3rd – $960k
- 4th – $600K
The players remaining:
- Issac Haxton
- Jason Koon
- Stephen Chidwick
- Andrew Lichtenberger
- Chris Brewer
Brewer and Lichtenberger get into a big hand, and one of them stands to go home with nothing. You would be hard-pressed to find a poker tournament spot where ICM matters more, and Pavlovic covers the implications in detail.
Key ICM Concepts Module Available Now
ICM (aka Independent Chip Model) is a mathematical concept at the core of a winning poker tournament strategy. If you want to achieve consistent success (and large payouts) in poker tournaments, a deep understanding of ICM concepts is a must.
ICM allows players to estimate the value of their stack at any given point in the tournament. ICM calculations evaluate a player’s chip stack and place a monetary value on it based on tournament payouts.
The three-hour module includes the following lessons:
- Solver-Land vs. Reality
- Trying to Fit Your Narrative
- Unnatural Shoves
- Stop Overplaying Pocket Pairs!
- Creative Flats and Tight Defends
- $150 Final Table Review
- Bonus Video: Super High Roller Bowl Stone Bubble
