  • Making notes

    Even in my mind this question makes me feel stupid, but I have to ask.

    I know I should be making notes on opponents at the tables but I never know what to write. A couple of examples I have written are: went all in utg +2 with k7; and runs the clock every hand, may be playing lots of tables and not paying full attention.

    Is this the right sort of thing to be noting or am I doing it wrong? I should point out that presently I'm only playing freerolls and play money, so I know the players will play differently to real money, I just want to understand what I should be noting when I make the real money transition.

    Thanks in advance,
    Ram.

    keep it simple- only note what you know-- cluttering your notes with 'maybe" and the like - only serves to complicate the issue-- start with this- note the players rank in the previous months play in the PSO- from that you can derive whether they are freerolling for a penny, or taking the league seriously- playing for points-- gl. monk-----

      Classify your opponents:

      Tight aggressive TAG Tricky

      Loose Aggressive LAG Maniac/Genius

      Loose Passive LPA Calling Station

      Tight Passive TPA Rock




      Use the colours as above when taking notes and you can see what type of player your opponent is at a glance.

      Update based on your experience at the table and not just results in the PSO league

        i have to agree with monkeyskunk, keep it simple, i can give you some examples, not only make notes, use color codes for the players you play against, for example red= good player, top 100th player....caution..yellow= decent player, top 500th-1000th player and green= bad player, loose.fish, calls anything..just some examples, never confuse yourself..gl..

          Thanks Monk, that's exactly the type of thing I was hoping for. Two good tips, neither of which had occurred to me, obviously.

          Appreciated,
          Ram.

          P.S. Any further tips from anyone will be gratefully received.

            Oops, two more posts while my phone was sending my reply. Thanks TC and Tariq. These tips are so simple, but obviously I can see how effective once told about them....

            Thanks again guys,
            Ram.

              I think Dave has a video up on note taking.. I like to search through the HH to see what players showdown with too, eg: ships 32 BB with K4 off, only raises 4BB with AJ or higher etc

                Thanks Roomik, I didn't realise you could do that. And I'm searching for that video when I get home from work.

                Cheers,
                Ram.
