# ICM Calculator March 1, 2010 at 05:46:41
Specs: Windows 7, n/a
 hey all,I'm not a programmer but wanted to get a programmers opinion on something?The below link brings you to whats called an ICM calculator. I would like to create a Java app or any format that will run on a windows system.Is it possible to create such a program? and can the source be taken from this site or does it need to be written from scratch?http://www.holdemresources.net/hr/s...Thanks See More: ICM Calculator

 this looks "ready to use" java script:http://www.holdemresources.net/hr/s...----------------- content: ----------------- /** * \param payouts Payout structure, e.g.: new double[]{0.5,0.3,0.2} * \param stacks Player stacks * \param player Index of selected player in the stack-array * \returns ICM equity for selected player */ public static double getEquity ( double [] payouts, double [] stacks, int player ) { double total = 0 ; for ( int i = 0 ; i < stacks.length; i++ ) total += stacks [ i ] ; return getEquity ( payouts, stacks.clone () , total, player, 0 ) ; } //Recursive method doing the actual calculation. private static double getEquity ( double [] payouts, double [] stacks, double total, int player, int depth ) { double eq = stacks [ player ] / total * payouts [ depth ] ; if ( depth + 1 < payouts.length ) for ( int i = 0 ; i < stacks.length; i++ ) if ( i != player && stacks [ i ] > 0.0 ) { double c = stacks [ i ] ; stacks [ i ] = 0.0 ; eq += getEquity ( payouts, stacks, total - c, player, depth + 1 ) * c / total; stacks [ i ] = c; } return eq; } Code converted with Java2html (java2html.de).

 its really this bit im worried about:"As long as all players have >0 chips, the implementation above is correct. This will be fine for most use-cases. For a fully fledged ICM implementation, we would have to deal with some special cases that bloat up the code considerably. e.g.: How to correctly deal with multiple players having zero chips"sounds like it wouldn't be as functional as the one on the site
