Next Generation MTT ICM Mode

HRC's multi table mode has been re-written from scratch and comes with a new high accuracy MTT ICM model.

The classic Malmuth-Harville ICM model is tricky to calculate for large fields. Most ICM tools either restrict the field size or use some crude approximation to generate tournament equity estimates sufficiently fast.

Our new MTT model approximates ICM incredibly well, easily within +/-0.01% accuracy for most spots, while being fast enough to run calculations with thousands of players. You can finally analyze those bubble spots in massive field tournaments and be confident about the results!
