SNG Wizard Review

SNG Wizard review

SNG Wizard 2 is a poker tool that will be useful for poker players at the late SNG tournament stages. During these stages, players have no time to sit and wait for the nuts, and instead of it, they should extend their ranges.

Have you ever heard about such a concept as "Push according to Nash"? This app 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 want to try your hand at Sit&Go's, then SNG Wizard will quickly turn you into a winning player at low limits. If you are a more skilled player, then the program will help you find and eliminate expensive mistakes that you may not even notice. 

To calculate pot odds and hand equity in regular tournaments, use the poker odds calculator that works online as well.


SNG Wizard Calculation Algorithm

SNG Wizard uses several models for decision-making: Independent Chip Model (ICM) and Future Game Simulation (FGS). The first one determines a 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:

  • Statistics on your opponents.
  • Your hand, board.
  • Analysis of all hands you've played in the tournament.
  • Your and your opponent's stack size; ratio of the stack to the blinds.
  • Prize pool distribution.
  • Players' positions at the table.
  • Remaining players’ quantity.
  • Your opponents’ perceived hands ranges.
  • Other important factors.

The SNG Wizard downloads automatically Hands History from the poker clients or Holdem Manager 3 and analyzes all necessary information according to ICM (see the “Poker terms dictionary”). The program displays information in the form of tables and diagrams. The calculation is carried out in the split second.

With regular use of the program, your decision-making time will be much reduced. You will be able to play more tournaments simultaneously. 

How to Use the Program

We prepared for you a short SNG Wizard tutorial to ease the process of work with it.

Open the "Tournaments" tab to see the downloaded tournaments you have played.

When you select any tournament, the Game View window will open with all hands played according to the ICM (push/fold) strategy. The program displays your decisions and shows whether you made correct actions or not. If the hand is controversial, you will see a yellow warning sign opposite it.

Click on the hand and a new window will open in from of you (Current Hand tab):

​The equity from push/fold will be displayed as Suggested Action (shown in the picture above). It tells what particular action will be profitable in a specific situation. The range of hands that you can use to shove is indicated under the Suggested Action.

You have the possibility to change the hand ranges for every opponent:

​Also, it's possible to set the playing style for each of your opponents:

In addition, you will be able to change your opponent's stack in order to see how the push/fold equity will change.

Quiz Trainer Feature

This powerful instrument will help you improve your decision-making. The program simulates a lot of situations and offers you to choose one of the two options in every situation (Quizess tab). Thus, you can hone your skills and will be able to make decisions independently later on.

SNG Wizard Pricing

The program will cost you $99 (lifetime license). It may seem a pretty big amount for beginners whose bankrolls are small, but the money invested in this software will be well spent. Besides, you receive a lifetime license with the possibility to update it from official servers free of charge.

We invite you to download SNG Wizard 2 for free and test a wide range of functions during a trial period. The trial period is 30 days. With it, you will have the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the program and understand whether it is useful for you or not.

Additional Information on the App

This is the only poker tool that includes possible overcalls during the calculations (other similar programs take into account only variants when your push is called by one opponent).

SNG Wizard 2 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.
