OMG, there are so many things wrong with your thinking, I am having trouble knowing where to start. First off, who is the site letting you take the money from in the first place ? Then when you lose the money, it doesn't go back to the same players you took it from. What happens to those players ?
The reason people win big and then lose it all is that they are not practicing proper bankroll management, plain and simple. Have you ever lost your entire stack at $10NL when your AA vs KK and villain spikes his King ? Now imagine that at $1000NL and you have your whole bankroll on the table.
It's variance, nothing more, nothing less - which is why you should only risk a percentage of your roll at a time.
