Do you use calendars to help keep track of poker games?
I can faintly remember one before, in which you could list the games and it would give you reminders, I think it may even have opened the site and tables concerned. I may have imagined it.
Other than that, I will have to look at some kind of online diary, google diary or even just buy a page a day paper copy.
I am really having trouble keeping track of the games, it was easy when I just used one or two sites but since returning to poker I am on 15+ sites and missing games, especially freerolls, simply because I forget (or I haven't timed it right and have two games on same network so can't open both).
p.s. I am trying out my new camera phone, if you solve this problem for me and if I can work out how to upload pics on here, I promise to show you a tit

I am currently using the mobile phone as a reminder. Im setting it up about 15-20 minutes before the game starts, it rings i see the note ive put in, open the site and wait All other reminders ive tried including PC based failed lol.
Im sure pochui will try his best to find you a solution on this
Usually, one can use the Tourney Filter in the lobby. Most sites have them. Then u can contact support to see if u are on their mailing list and if they sent tourney reminders. Other than that, there should be a calendar in your e-mail client and that can be set up to provide a reminder. How's that?

I use Excel myself, but if you have Windows 7 or higher, then you can use the built it Windows Calendar. You can create categories and stuff like that and it will warn you with a popup and sound for example 10 minutes before start of a tournament. You can set all those things.

Damn girl, I couldn't keep up either! 15 sites to play poker on. I only wish I could play on a few, but here I am living in the great U. S. of A (Assholes). LOL Good Luck and yeah, probably implement some type of electronic calemndar in excel or send yourself e-mails with the scheduled time and site in the e-mail using a reminder!

I only use calendars when i register to some big MTT and i'm affraid to forget about it because it will only take place in more than two weeks or so. In those cases, i always create a note on my smartphone, with sound, so that i can remember. And also for those events in which i am not registered but that i am very interested in registering. In those cases, i also use calendar. About everything else, i don't feel the need to fill in a calendar with all my action at the tables.

lol well played with the tit picture But im telling you the best one is setting alarms on you mobile phone. You can even set them ring on daily or weekly basis. You will never forget a tournament again.
