Guy Laliberte getting crushed online.
I was just reading on pokerbloggs.com the other day and came across an entry about Guy Laliberte and some of the biggest winners and loses recently playig high stakes online (for those who do not know Laliberte is the owner of Cirque du Soleil, and has appeared on High Stakes Poker).
Now I never really rated Laliberte againts the other players on HSP and believed he just ran really good not to spew all his money away. However he is apparently an absolute spewtard online. He plays under the username 'elmariachimacho' on full tilt and is down more than $4,000,000 over just 8,100 hands!!!!
About $1,700,000 of this is to Tom Dwan. Laliberte also rumouredly plays under the names 'patatino' and 'ladymarmelade' which are down $465,000 and $400,000 respectly this year to Dwan also.
But I guess when your worth about 1 point 2 bill, whats 5 or 6 mill a year spent on recreation.
Ahhh to be able to play in the nosebleed stakes.
