He told me he was writing down all the components of the hand. He said to me he does this to learn from his mistakes and when the chance comes to play this hand again, he will be able to go at it with a smarter strategy. I thought that was very smart and to this day I keep notes of my games. You should keep track and write down information such as, What were the stack sizes before the start of the hand?
