It's kinda weird here that you're calling a guy who probably has a better clue than 99.9% of the members on this site 'not correct' & 'wrong and wrong again you are'.
I don't have a clue about who is losing all the money in higher stakes cashgames (online or live).... aside from stuff you hear in the news ie. Gus being down a bunch in 2013. But for tournament play 'online', occassionally you'll see players in the $100 & $200 buyins who are down over $100k (some -$300k). Deep in any of those tourneys you generally see all winning players.
don't understand the point your trying to make, i for one see for a fact most of the top players in my country aren't really staked they just luckbox a tourney are good tourney players and can win in the long term, now for cash i don't care who loses but all i know is to win you can do it in various ways by bumhunting or by being better than other good players or a combo, i don't know any good player in my country who is down 100k in tourneys otherwise they would just not make it, obviously lithuania is not a rich country and those who do have money that did not come from poker would not play poker at high stakes, small population so low likelyhood people want to blow there money away, so only the good players survive from this pool, in other larger markets you see more money coming in and people losing lots of money, anyways i disagree that you have to bumhunt in cash games but he may be right doesn't matter to me all i know is that i am right about it in my country that most top players are ones who started off by getting rolled with a big tourney score
