      Yeah... ...better focus on poker when you play. :f_p:

      Although you were on the phone you played well this hand! There's no way to slow down with betting just because the board paired, that way you loose way too much value from lots of other hands you beat by far like Jx, FDs, OESDs etc.

      EDIT: P.S.: I think open minraising is not that good on NL10-25. Just make the standard 3BB openraises for higher value.

      Best regards,
