      Hi fellow grinders, im curious how would you write a note for such a play from BB?

      mine looks like this: BB Ah5h cc FBvMCB-C/C PB v NF/x 2 Jh6h8h 2 i like to optimze as much as i can. But sometimes i feel of need to have em simplified in couple words instead of writing down all actions and board.

      CO (112.8BB) 113bb
      BTN (114.6BB) 115bb
      SB (146.6BB) 147bb
      BB (223BB) 223bb

      Pre-Flop: (1.4BB, 6 players) Hero is UTG A 3
      Hero folds, 3 folds, SB to 3BB, BB calls 2BB

      Flop: 2 J 6 (6BB, 2 players)
      SB checks, BB bets 3BB, SB raises to 14.8BB, BB calls 11.8BB

      Turn: 8 (35.6BB, 2 players)
      SB bets 34.2BB, BB calls 34.2BB

      River: 2 (104BB, 2 players)
      SB checks, BB checks

      Final Pot: 104BB
      SB shows a pair of Deuces
      A 5
      BB shows a flush, Ace high
      A 5

      BB wins 99.6BB (net +47.6BB)

      SB lost 52BB

      I don't like your note because it's too cryptic. It's really nice to come up with your own "notes system" but you are leaving the interpreting for when you actually need the info which is bad. Interpret it now, find out what it means and note that, don't just write a bunch of code. And don't just write observations - what does it mean? better just keep the key info. i would say:

      passive with NFD vs agg, with flush scared of FH

      You really don't need everything like Ah5h (just write A5s?). Your note is total overkill imo and almost completely useless. No offence :)

      From that note you can see he doesn't stack off with his good draws, and that he might be paranoid about stronger hands when he has nearly the nuts. This info can give you a good idea for how he thinks.
