Keeping Notes On Opponents
If you play a lot of the same opponents all the time it is a good idea to keep notes on their play style to give you an idea of what to expect and maybe give you some advantage.
These can be written or mental notes and I generally have mental notes on certain players that have caused me problems in the past and while I am on a table I am noting/reading every players style on that table continually.
For example some things I note:
Player is passive, folds to pressure, plays only pat hands, loose aggressive and lucky
Player slow plays high pairs, bluffs alot, flush fisher, over bets hands, bully, nit.
Player signals a hit on clock, waits for river before bet, calls everything.
Once you have notes on a player you can adjust your play style accordingly and honestly there are some players I know I will beat 90% of hands head to head based on just knowing their play style.
Keep in mind other people are also keeping notes on you so don’t let your play style become predictable.
So start keeping notes on players you play against alot and see if your game improves.
