      Hello newsat,

      Sure, if you would also Bet with made hands that way, otherwise I'd usually bet the same amount as you did. So overall, not worth, we are just giving great odds for a Call.

      Best regards.

      Yeah, I'd say so. NL10 ain't what it used to be, overall poker is tougher nowdays and rather just get used to Bet sizings on lower limits than higher ones. For example I have coached my own few players who play NL5 & NL10 and they also started taking notes on the bets and I am pretty sure there are a lot more players who take such notes. Very easy to adjust to such bet sizings, even if you think that nobody see them.
