  • players notes

    Hi all can someone tell me what kind of things i should be noting about players,i am playing in open skill league and started kind of taking notes but i seem to only have notes on players to try and avoid as they are calling and going all in with anything and winning alot of times,i have folded some good hole cards as i dont want to bust out early and lose points. sorry if people think this is a crazy question but any help would be appreciated. thankyou.

    I used to always check HH and see what cards they are raising big with, how often they raise out of position with and with what cards... do they fold often to a raise how many hands they play etc...

          You can also check out the videos in the live training sessions. The Langolier has one on note taking.

              First, try to identify what style the person is playing, is he Tight- Aggressive, Loose-Passive, Maniac, Weak-Tight, a calling station, etc. etc, this is always the first note I take on a player. If you want to learn more about identifying playing styles I recommend you watch Dave's "Profiling For Exploitation" video...http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/art...r-exploitation

              I also note what kinds of hands the player is willing to put money into the pot with, if he reraises postflop and goes to showdown note what hand strength he needed to reraise, was TPTK good enough to reraise or did he need 2 pair or better? If he calls a bet postflop and goes to showdown note what hand strength he needed to call, did he just call with TPTK, was he drawing to a straight or flush, did he have second or third pair?

                Though Dave has run this class a couple of times or more, it has yet to make it into the video archives but for sure look for it in future live training classes and hopefully they can archive this class at some point.great info! The class is titled "effective note taking" I have a couple PMs reguarding this and i'll try to copy paste them here later...and PS YOU DONT WANT TO AVOID THE ATC SHOVE MONKEYS..you want them on your buddy list..

                  Beside your own observations about players styles,betting structure and position play
                  There are poker tracking site that have a whole heap of info on every player whether they play mtt's
                  sng's or cash ring tables which give you a fair indication of your opponents

                    hey joker ...gl at the tables m8.... for player tendecies I use the colour coded rings so that my notes don't get too complicated. There are a few in the prem league with the covetted green donk ring lol. as mentioned previously my notes tend to be about playing style and hand strengths associated with actions. in particular 3 and 4 bet tendencies and steal percentages as well as particular habits of players that I notice. it's good to know range as well so this finds its way into notes 4 me quite often..knowing that someone was willing to call a short stack raise with 94 off could be valuable in the future !!! any way m8 thats what I do right or wrong hope it helps cheers r0ck umbup: gl at the tables

                        I like to note if the person will play a bigger range of hands in position, whether they can be bluffed off a hand(cant bluff bad players) if they tilt easy etc.
