I usually have a very basic word/phrase at the top of the note (like "idiot fish plays atc" or "insane maniac bluffs at any big pot" or "super nit". And I am by no means doing this for every villain on every hand. This is just a rough mental check list that I run through (well, try
to run through) after I play a big hand against someone ... assuming I have a few seconds if I'm not involved in a hand at another table. I'm just trying to get a sense of what I might want to look for in a villain's play that my HUD won't already tell me.
