Who said this game is hard?

For the last three weeks or so, I have been in a pattern of playing four single-table SNGs a day on Bodog--two at a time right after lunch (I'm waiting for the tables to fill as I write, in fact), and another two just before I go to bed. It has been fun, profitable, and mostly easy.

Yesterday was especially easy. In each of my two pairs of games, I scored a first and a second. This was in part due to having been dealt quads three times yesterday. The first was three 3s on the board, and another in my hand. I didn't know it was going to become a pattern, so I didn't screen-shot that one. But then these came up:

(The money was all in on the flop in that last one.)

I was also getting dealt the Deuce-Four ridiculously often over the last couple of days, which can only help. (Apparently I have been forgiven my indiscretion of several days ago.)

In that last hand, Bodog had swept my hole cards away a split second before I took the screen shot, but of course I had the 2-4 there. Why else would I have wanted to capture the moment? You see, even on those rare occasions when 2-4 fails to make the actual nuts, it still exerts a Jedi mind trick effect on opponents: "These are not the cards you're looking for." Fire one, two, or three barrels, and they'll fold.

I don't think there is any find-player feature available on Bodog. At least I haven't found it if there is.

Hey Gump...are you not playing as much live lately? Been reading you daily for couple years now and have noticed the comments on live play have pratically fallen off the radar. Still enjoy your post and will continue to read, but just curious. Surely there must have been some interesting hands come up the last couple months or so.

BTW. try as might Bodog will not let me on. They say I had an account, which of course I remember nothing about.
