If i would ever be smart/stupid enough to mark my opponents then i definitely would use my head for it - that way i could be able to use categories like "wannabe english teacher", "senile old man" etc on particular people :bebored:

No, I don't tag players at the poker table. They can change their style of play. I try to get information while playing.

Make two types of marking, more and less aggressive, but this is subjective,so beware :)

Colors I just use two, for very tight and very loose players, but I always make some notes with some weird hands that the player made.

Nit - Red - fold if he bets
Purple - Bad Lag, let him bet for you
Yellow - reg - play straight up
Green - money- passive calling station
Blue - like yellow but a lot smarter

Yes I sometimes do. But not ever because my Hud is giving me the statistics of the opponents I already faced. So I only mark really specifics players, like very dangerous sharks or (the opposite) real idiots :D

Very important to tag the villains.

Good morning everyone, I think it's very important to mark the villains, I play a lot of cash games and players that I have notes from recreational players I usually play big pots with medium hands, eg AKo on the TA 5 flop, vs recreational players mostly I'm winning this hand, but vs regular players I try to control the pot size almost whenever you are going to play this hand against good players making big pots many times these players will have trips or 2 pair after the river.
The notes in play helps a lot in decision making.

Hi,

meanwhile I only mark the players to get a quick overview of whether a certain zoom pool is currently profitable or not. For more precise details (such as tight or loose reg) I use my HUD.



Personally, I think that self-written notes from hands that have come to the showdown are more important than color labels.

I do color code players and date them. Players change over time. If the date is old I am not going to take the label I give them as correct until it proven again.

There was a time when i marked by yellow colour opponents as players whose like to bluff but i don't do it anymore because i don't play with tchem in one table too often and everyone likes bluff sometimes.
