Morning!!
Hope U guys are still under hangovers' from your Easter Tongue

As I believe it is very important you keep updating your notes on your opponents, I think it is as well tagging them with different colors.
You can be playing in multiple tables and therefore, by seeing that green tag, you already know the kind of player you're against with even before reading his notes.

Here's how I tag my opponents:

1- Super Tight
2- Loose Aggressive
3- Limper's Mini-raisers (with monster hands)
4- Super Fish
5- Recreational Noobs
6- Bluffers
7- Totally Donk

Cheers Blink

yes it is a good thing to have some info on your opponents, extra insight is never a bad thing, i like two categories of your system, nr 5- recreational boobs and nr 7- totally donk. basically they represent my life with me being nr 7 and seeking to find opponents in nr 5 sector.

Off course, it's important to have so much informations about your opponents how it's possible. But also important was the playing level. In the micros and lower levels can you see so much maniacs and players, which play every hand. And against 2-3 players was your preflop mega hand not often the best at the end.

i have notes like:

1. he stinks
2. sweats excessively when bluffing
3. scratching his balls when having a monster
4. farts alot

life its very important to know your opponents, but online its kinda useless to me. loose agressive players can be tight and the other way around or someone is tilting, changed his style of play and so on. notes from weeks ago arent up to date imo. its the moment that counts.

I used to designate players by their style of play, but then I stopped doing it ... because the game of the players is changing ... maybe when I was making a note about him he was just drunk and played accordingly ... ... it was for fulltilt but After he merged with pokerstars, everything was lost Aww crap!

Taggin is good when you are playing against the same opponents often.
And this can happen with no so popular games or even in smaller sites.
In omaha h/l for example tagging helps a lot.
You know before flop when some are after the low or have AA , if you have watched them
for a while Smile

That happens to me as well, I just update his notes, like: Player is playing different.
Even I do have like 3 different ways to play hands.
But these info's really help make good calls in later stages of tournaments

How is that even a category? Bluffers, LAG players and donks aren't the different sides of the same coin? I would keep it simple IMO, no need for this many categories...

now when bowie is getting into the nitty gritty thing of this tagging strategy, i actually too spotted an interesting pairing- super fish & totally donk... i just wonder how do they differ? can a super fish be a total donk too, or maybe they can turn into a combo of totally super fishy donk?

yes they can. That's why I have an extra tag for players that I have different info's....
This tag alerts me to read the info on the notes so I can make my (hard) decision.

I have more different categories, with little bit different words but kinda same-ish. Calling station is missing Smile

I am usually busy playing many tables, so I use abbreviations (with the date of a note taken).

For example:
• AG (01/10/15) • BAM • BL • CS • DK • GD • LMP • LS PSV • MKY TLT • MOFO • RG • RK • STD • SVR (UTG AI W 33, 03/15/16) • TGT PSV, etc.

------------
Besides the above mentioned, color labels or icons are useful for quickly identifying your opponents.

I do not use this tagging option at all, i don't olay a lot and if I do then only at low stakes and modt i play just for fun, so not wanting to out so much effort into this tagging strategy creation, but I think it is a good think to fo to those who play bigger stakes.

Its not a big effort writing down a small note for each player.
Especially when you see that their play is repetitive.
It helps you, making the right decisions fast saving you money, and most probably winning you
some on the top of it.

If you play constantly the same games or tournaments, then of course you begin to recognize the familiar nickname at the table ... and if these players play so that they attract attention, then of course they are worth noting ... for example, very stupid bets or on the contrary an absolutely thought out game

As others in this thread already mentioned online especially at micro stakes it's not as usefull as one would think unless you play against the same players again and again since you can't categorise someone after just one session often you see someone play like a braindead fish and the next time you play against the same opponent he/she plays a decent game so basically yes notes and colour tags can be helpfull but only if you have enough info on the player to actually put him/her into a category

If you play cash game in a small poker site then you gone see same players very often then it is worth to tag them could give you a very good advantage.

On the three big sites there are so many players that you won't see the same one very often unless you are playing high stakes so tagging in small stake IMO is not very worth. Smile Smile
