Do you put notes on your opponents?
And I always put it, even if I lose and leave the game in a next tournament I already have enough information about this opponent, this has helped me a lot when I meet them at the tables again.
It is an excellent recommendation, I take note of the fishes and the sharks, it is always good to know who you are facing.

Notes helps to remember, usually players continue to play the same way.

Not. If the player is playing shifting notes, it won't help you. I remember which player plays roughly how, but this is not a guideline of decision.

Yes, indeed, sometimes notes help to make the right decision. Lately I've been writing notes to myself a lot and I find such information very valuable.

Personally, I've never done it.
But I should start doing it if I want to progress.
It's better than playing mechanically.
I confess that I always play without being 100% concentrated, doing another task in parallel on my PC. Maybe this is my big weakness.

Are you taking notes about your opponents?
And I always say that even if I lose and leave the game in a next tournament, I already have enough information about that opponent, which has helped me a lot when I meet him at the tables again.
That's a good question, and yes, I've made some notes before, not so much now, I'm trying to remember the dangerous opponents and their moves as well as possible, and I'm making relatively good progress with it, but thanks to you contribution, I'm starting again with the right information and writing down player moves. Thanks for the idea, I haven't thought about it for a long time, but now I'm doing it again. Have a nice evening

I'm not used to scoring opponents, I've tried to do more yet I haven't seen much difference in scoring opponents.

I do, but not as I should.

There are many things written like:
'This idiot gave me a bad beat'
Nothing (information) to take advantage of!

However, I'm already working on it and making the appropriate notes.

Do you mean in live poker or online? I mark the games online with colors and that indeed helps me with some decisions. In live poker, I usually unconsciously notice the conspicuousness of the opponent and act accordingly.

I don't take notes about them because they may have a different game depending on the tournament

Hello.
I absolutely agree with you. In my opinion, notes are a great tool that can sometimes help us a lot. At least for me, my notes quite often help me make the right decision.

Hi.
I also make notes and have already seen from my own experience that sometimes such information can bring money. Notes is a great tool in my opinion, and players who don't use this feature are missing out on a good advantage.
Good luck.

I used to keep notes but lost them all when Ontario switched and I needed a new App and don’t play those same people anymore :(
Since then I really haven’t played much poker but hope to get back into it through the winter months.
