I have SNGWIZ and I want to be able to study/quiz spots, is there an effective way to utilize this software for studying purposes to eventually be able to have solid ranges in game?
As far as this bit goes, the work-around used by most players is that their ranges depend on the number of players left to act. So in that regard, using bb's to guide your play approximates somewhat to using an M ratio, because we're shoving UTG (9 players, large M) much tighter than we are shoving the CO (4 players, small M).
