I don't usually take written notes on my opponents, however, visually and by remembering the names of the most outstanding players I've had the fortune to play with, I'm taking mental notes and that has also helped me improve my games.

I don’t because I mostly play small tourneys or freerolls, where most are playing bingo, but when I play live, I generally tag quick opponents behaviors

I only do it in mid and high buy-in tournaments and cash and live mentally frame them, their abilities, weaknesses, etc. In the low buy-in games and freerolls I don't do it because a lot of beginners play, those who play for fun and those who play bingo, in these games almost no player maintains a style of play, they usually vary too much.

Notes are very important and often help make decisions easier if I have good notes or tips from the past.

Haha me too seriously I don't think it's possible to have notes and labels for all the players at the Poker room.
But, I think if you are playing everytime the same stack with work you can manage to have information about all your opponents.
It's recommended but personally I do it when I see something very special

Always, it is a powerful weapon when you know who you are facing and what movements he could make according to his hand.

Notes are important if you like stacking chips.

Case in point (recent tournament): I had 77 on the button, early stages, 32bb effective. CO rfi to 3x. my note says he ALWAYS rfi 3x. i call. flop comes Q32 rainbow, villain c-bets 1/2 pot. my note says he ALWAYS c-bet halfpot regardless of IP/OOP, flop texture, etc. AND he's sticky. i shove, he calls with ATs. pocket seven holds.

Not at all. However, I adjust my play if any player plays strangely. ;)

Good morning everyone, poker is a game for people and some people will play very well and others will play very poorly.
How do you know who are the good players and who are the bad players?
Making notes about villains is essential for every player who wants to become a professional and live from poker, I remember when I started in poker in 2018, not long ago, but when I heard other players talking about the importance of taking notes on villains, I didn't think that it was so important but yes it is fundamental to do this.

Yes. Mostly, bingo players and timewasters or an overbetter, or a poor buffer. Unfortunately these descriptions fit far too many in the freeroll games. Don't generally have these issues in league/VIP/invite games.

No I never do as I don’t think you play against the same opponents often enough

Taking notes is very helpful. But one day a player called my all-in with K2o and won, that was the start of the tournament and I had AA. I've marked it as a fish. After I saw him at the final table, some very strange actions took him to the final table. I don't even know how to mark it, it's probably weird

Hello if I put information about my rivals because I always play the same tournaments and I meet them regularly. And I classify them by color so I know more or less how they play

Yes! It's very usefull. I usually describe the whole hand like:

He 3-bet pre-flop with A9, then call with 7-K-2 flop... and so on

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.
Rarely , but I do when I see a repeated behaviour of certain poeple.

Always and from everyone, I don't miss anything, I'm as detailed as possible, having the notes will help you a lot in the future, it only takes a few seconds and will be useful to you for eternity, so remember, write down and mark everything you can about your opponents.
