I know the theory behind the push or fold in heads up (Is well explained in The mathematics of poker of Chen & Ankenman). I know that exists software (e.g. ICM trainer) that computes the push or fold range, even in ICM scenario, in a multiway hand in push or fold regime. I am wondering which is the algorithm. In other words which is the fictitious play algorithm that this software are using? Well I am reading Kill Everyone of Lee Nelson, and in this is book is presented a table where you can know if push or fold the Hole cards based in in your stack and the M factor and I would like to reproduce this table. I googled a little bit but I had not found any reference.

If you're interested in this sort of algorithm, I suggest you check out holdem leak manager.

I'm not in any way affiliated with the site. However I believe strongly you'll not only find the answer to This and other questions like it - but that you will also love HLM. here ya go

Between that and Table Ninja, you (and everyone else on earth) now holds the key to all leaks in your game. Good Luck
