it would be very hard to count lol..your best bet would be to just be aware of what everyone is doing...and if its just 1 table, you will improve your table awareness the more you practice it......if you start counting everything then you will miss everything else...
you need a clear mind and to just notice the table...you will start to pick up whats happening and once you have a player sussed out, you wont really need to work on that guy as much as the other ones you haven't worked out yet....im assuming its micro stakes, most players don't adjust there games at all...
dont make a relatively easy observational exercise more complicated than what it is......just practice and pay attention...your brain will pick it up....counting numbers will just confuse the **** out of you.
