SNG Wizard 2 review
SNG Wizard 2 is a poker soft that will be useful for poker players at the late SNG tournaments stages. During these stages players have no time to seat and wait for the nuts and instead of it they should extend their ranges.
Have you ever heard about such concept as “To push according to Nash”? SNG Wizard will help you to find out when it is profitable to go all-in with a short stack, and when it is profitable to fold the cards or just call the opponent’s bet. In addition to the range, many other factors are taken into account.
If you are a novice player or just try your hand in SitNGo, SNG Wizard will quickly turn you into a winning player at low limits. If you are more skilled player then the program will help you to find and eliminate the expensive mistakes which you may not even notice.
SNG Wizard calculation algorithm
SNG Wizard uses several models for the decision-making: Independent Chip Model (ICM) and Future Game Simulation (FGS). The first one determines the player’s chance of winning based on the player’s stack ratio to the overall remaining players’ stack. The second model is based on the first one but a lot of other important factors are taken into account here:
- The statistics on your opponents.
- Your hand, board.
- All your hands’ analysis that were played in this tournament.
- Your stack size and the opponents’ one, the stack ratio to the blinds.
- Prize-pool distribution.
- The player’s position.
- The remaining players’ quantity.
- Your opponents’ supposed hands ranges.
- The other important factors.
The app automatically downloads the hands history from the poker clients or Holdem Manager 2 and analyzes all necessary information according to ICM (see the “Poker terms dictionary”). The program displays information in the form of the tables and diagrams. The calculation is carried out in the split second.
During the regular program usage your time for the decision-making will be shortened considerably. You will be able to play more tournaments simultaneously.
How to use SNG Wizard 2?
The program has English interface, and you will probably need the dictionary in order to be guided at its functionalities.
Enter the tab “Tournament View” in order to see the downloaded tournaments you have played.
While selecting any tournament the tab “Game View” will be opened with all hands played according to ICM strategy (push/fold). The program displays your decisions’ correctness and show whether you made correct decisions or not. If the hand is a disputable one then you will see a yellow warning sign in front of it.
A new tab will be opened by clicking on the hand:
The equity from push/fold will be displayed here; in the Suggest field it is written what action is profitable in the hand. The hand’s range which you can use for going all-in is indicated under it.
You have the possibility to change the hands’ range separately for every opponent, or just set the playing style:
You will be able to change your opponents stack in order to see how the push/fold equity will be changed.
It is important: you mustn’t use the program during the poker-room client running. They are monitoring the process on PC and if they notice you are using the prohibited soft, they can ban you (sometimes they send the warnings). At the official PokerStars website the program is in the list of the permitted programs but you can use it only after the game session ending and during non-running client.
This powerful instrument will help you to train for the decision-making. The program simulates a lot of situations and offers you to make one of the two decisions in every situation. Thus, you can improve your skills and will be able to make the decisions independently later on.
Devote the several minutes per day to the trainings and your play level will increase significantly.

What else should you know about SNG Wizard?
SNG Wizard is the only utility that includes the possible overcalls during the calculations (the other similar programs take into account only the variants when your push is called by the one opponent).
SNG Wizard can be used in the MTT tournaments. In this case you should create the template with a prize pool payouts structure and set the tournament’s conditions. The instruction is in the program help. Furthermore, you should tick the box in front of “Chip E.V.” to the final table, and at the final table stage you should turn on ICM.
