The Overlay podcast describes ICM and how to apply ICM theory to your final table play as it pertains to the big stack, middle stacks, and short stacks. ICM stands for the Independent Chip Model. This model is a means to convert tournament players chip stacks into their money equity (as a percentage of the total or remaining prize pool). It may sound difficult but Brandon breaks it down for us so recreational poker players can understand what the heck ICM is and how you should apply it to your final table play.
