Any short-hand/labeling systems out there you guys are using that works?
I've always made a practise of making a ton of notes. Not so much these days vs. earlier on but still a fair bit (still make quite a few in priv./forum games as you'll see the same players over & over). Also worth noting (occassionally) how they may have perceived your own play in certain spots.
I've got all kinds of short-hand stuff I've developed over time.
I think it's very important especially for newer players to make notes. Helps them to remain focused & helps to develop the intuitive process.
I've also got a fairly extensive colour-code system (I use over a dozen diff. colours on Stars, lol ).
