immensely profitable hmmm...it could be true for an individual hand but even the best players have fairly low ROIs in medium+ stakes.
Anyways, ICM is most important on the 9-man bubble, ie when 4 players are left. This is because the payout jump from $0 to 3rd is huge.
Basically what ICM 'says' (only with HH we can give better advice)
1) play very tight when you can go broke
2) shove/raise lightly when you have a big stack
