      The point is that you can't learn what you Don't Record. If you think you'll remember something just because it seems important now, you're wrong. You need to write it down. And you need to periodically review what you've written down to make sure you're using it.

      Any other advice?

      This is why many players use Tracking software such as Holdem Manager, PokerTracker & PokerStrategy's very own "Elephant"

      Helps you look at those hands you may have forgot, or mark them whilst you play to review later :)

      Use a hud, hand review yourself,use our Hand Evaluation forums here to post hands where you are unsure of the lines you took etc...

      1. Invest in Hold Em.

      2. Download Pokerstove.

      3. If possible, 'hot debrief' yourself of hand just played using ingame HH and Pokerstove (assess equity calls/shoves/folds)

      4. Later highlight and read through problem hand (s) on HEM.

      5. If necessary submit hands to Hand Analysis threads on forum(s) to get feedback from other players.
      * If possible provide HUD data in order to give readers a feel for player tendencies.
      ** Also if any patterns or strange occurrences mention them.
      *** Don't BS, or pad the PHA out too much - it just confuses readers/doesn't get u an accurate analysis/makes u look stupid.

      6. Purchase and run Leakbuster (an app for HEM)

      7. Read other peoples PHA's - if necessary contribute and see what others think of your line.

      8. Read books/watch videos.

      9. Don't make the mistake again...
