**Exactly Maggie and this is why it is an open pair....**

Maggie, a refresher, an open pair is a consecutive pair, like 35-36 or 43-44, in which neither of the numbers has hit yet subsequent to having appeared as a pair. A pair would be closed when one or both of the numbers hit again. So, if 35 hit, the open pair 35-36 would be closed. When you get a conseccutive pair, usually 1 or both numbers will hit within 4 draws - that's why we watch them. Sometimes, both numbers hit right after they are drawn - courtesy of Dennis.
