I’ve noticed an increased tendency recently among players on forums and in tournaments towards the bubble. They seem to be taking ICM too literally. They seem to be forgetting that the “M” in ICM stands for “model”. Your true equity in bubble situations is not exactly as ICM predicts. I’d like to recap the known shortcomings of the model, and consider some rules of thumb to help with decision making in the heat of battle.
