So a friend of mine came up with a new way of calculating an ICM model, and it's been added to ICMIZER here: (to use, select the Ben Roberts model in the top right)

Anyone who plays a lot of SNGs or MTTs might find it interesting to play around with, because there may be somewhat significant implications for shovefests at high blinds.

If you're also quite mathematically oriented, you may be interested in how the new model was created.

This looks very good to me, I did write a simple python script to calculate ICM to make it simplier than using the online ones and I did get stuck when trying to estimate last two table situations as it does get slow if more than 10 stacks are used so the speed increase alone is very welcome.
