Most people use there I-Pod to play music when they are playing or so I assume. But the idea to put tracks on it with poker advice recently popped into my head. Tracks like the start of the tourney the middle of the tourney the end game. Were each track would give a run-down of what to think about and how to play during each part of the tournament. Also there could be tracks like against a tight player against a loose player…..
What do you think? Do people do this already?
For me, tracking the players at my tables has proven to be a huge benefit. I have been creating a personal coding system not unlike the ones used in on-line HUDs. I wont give details b/c it took me too long to perfect but you don't need an App to track just someplace to take simple 3-5 character alpha/numeric notes.
I use phone & pandora to keep me entertained while some high end headphones keep me apprised of all conversations (better than I can hear them without) & I just take 10 seconds to make a note about a player when called for, on my cell.

But now the state gaming commission outlawed any electronic device at the table so I can't use them. Want them? Professionally done.
I would love to see what you put together.

Live I have tried it, but you just miss out on so much information, and you come across as a bit of a dick tbh. .
I don't mind the perception b/c I am sort of a dick tbh. But I'm there to install respect/fear and send everybody home broke, not make friends.
I first tried my current system in the only "Rated" Majors tournament series I played this summer and it worked out ok.
