Poker is pretty stalled for me lately! Feel pretty happy with how I've been playing, and was having my first winning month in ages this month until I got poker doomed last night.
MY POKER MEMORY SUCKS
I think one thing significantly inhibiting my game right now is my memory. My memory is awful! Or if not my memory, my ability to associate, or lack of trying to associate a player with a particular name. I'll play a big hand, and remember every detail about the hand several hours later, but will not be able to tell you who it was with (if its not with someone I play a TON against).
This isn't just at the poker table. If I read a book, I won't be able to tell you the names of any characters, and similarly if I watch a movie. I suppose I just don't hold any importance to people's names in these situations, since the name itself doesn't influence anything.
However, in poker, I think its important to remember ppl's names. If you can't remember who you played the hand against, you certainly can't remmeber a series of hands with them, or trends in the hands you've played. As a result, I'm forced to re-read my notes on ppl every session. Similarly, I'm probably not exploiting particular players tendencies, and am essentially just treating all the fish the same way, and all the regs the same way.
Any tips on improving memory? Or improving memory in the poker world? remembering poker aliases better etc?
