I'm a struggling micro-stakes player trying the hardest I can to improve as fast as I can, but I think I should improve the quality of my study/notes taking process.
I mean I've "browsed" ( as in started and never finished ) dozens of poker books, watched at least one episode from several series, and tried all the possible ways to take/store notes.
I have plenty of sticky notes on my main display ( windows display, not physically post-its ), stored notes in text documents, OO/Word docs, Google docs or web pages, have also a dozen different sizes/shapes/formats physical paper notebooks started, tried Evernote and a couple more online apps, but in the end I have plenty of scattered information everywhere and probably much less of it in my head while playing
So I wonder what should I be doing differently, maybe have a unique information repository, create some categories ( like pre-flop, flop play, turn, river, 3bet pots, etc. ) and add to each appropriate category instead of creating a new notes template for each new video/article/book I read ?
The downside would be that there will be lots of categories, and where do you put those borderline things of cross-categories subjects ?
On the positive I imagine it would be easier to review things, like say I call too much 3bets, I'll have a "call 3bet" category with all the infos on the subject to review whenever I want.
In fact I'm not sure if this is really software related, but can't figure a better category to put this in, if I'm wrong, thanks to any mod who can move this to a better place. I think is more of a "how to study" issue, but storing/reviewing notes seems quite important, and I'm certainly doing wrong, as there's plenty of notes I've taken that I have no recollection on right now ...
any tip/idea/suggestion would be greatly appreciated ...
thank you and GL at the tables
