Yes... but the players I speak of are high stakes players, so they find it demeaning to have to play at levels such as $10/$20. It is not the losing at the higher limits that is fishy... but the way these high limit players play. For example... one person on stars lost 20K in one sitting to a player who was raising and re-raising almost all of the hands that were dealt, and this player hit straight after flush after full house. The fishy part of that sitting was that the winning player was behind all the way to the river, but kept being aggressive all the way. The pots were huge so easily called down. Unfortunately, the river would be the make card for this players hand about 80% of the time that he won. This was just one sitting, and he could afford to lose the 20K, but it was very strange the way that it happened. I am hoping this was a freak incident, because I play on PokerStars myself... I don't play that high of stakes, but I may get there at some point...
