Taking Notes While Playing Poker

If you have decided that you like one particular online poker website and play it regularly then it is a good idea to start taking notes as you play. Useful things to note down are the names of the players who you are playing with and the way that they tend to play. When you are playing against lots of different players, it can be hard to remember what they are all like and what playing styles they have.

For example there may be players who just always keep on raising the bet regardless of how good their hand is and there will be cautious players who only bet if they have a good hand. There could be all sorts of clues to their hands in the way that they play, even when you are playing online and by beginning to observe other people and how they play as well as concentrating on your own hand, you will begin to be able to predict what they have and make an allowance for that when you are betting as well as considering what you, yourself have.

If you play on a popular website it may take a long time for you to get enough information to draw any conclusions about payers. However, if you play at a similar time each day, you will be likely to meet the same players and then you will be able to have a lot of information about them. Doing this can add a new dimension to the game and it can improve your chances of doing well. It may seem like a hassle but if you start winning more often then you will be very grateful that you took the time and effort to do it. Also it needn’t be too much work, just a few brief notes every so often and it could make a lot of difference.
