Default Biggest fish in high stakes games?

we all know guys like guy laliberte or the tourney winners like jamie gold who come and dump off a couple hundred grand, but who are the biggest cash game losers that are regulars, not everyone can win, I know money comes up, all the way from the 1/2 players who take shots at 5/10 and lose to the guys who take shots at 10/20 who lose, etc, etc, but who are some of the high stakes losers? farha seems to lose a ton, i'd imagine daniel alaei or sheikhan, some of the foreign guys are from rich families and dump off a lot, who are some of the big losers you know of? cuz they arent all making dough

Online poker is a huge pyramid scam. Everyone is winning (until the whole thing collapses on itself).

LOL @ Saying Alei is a bad player, he is probably one of the top 20 best cash NLHE players in the world

Just look on the high stakes db at the biggest losers over the last 4 months and see which names are always on there. That should give you some clue.

everyone is not a winner and thats what keeps the pyramid standing tall. the biggest winner is still the game provider.

Farha "seems" to lose a ton? How does he "seem" to do that? The word on the street is he's had a verryyyyy profitable year.

Alaei - great player...

Sheikhan - does he even play in the big game?

Noataima has lost approx $8,918 per 100 hands this year, and provided his "average limit" is around BB=$300, he runs at around -15PTBB/100.
Zohhh
Myeeee
Gawwwd
Does he have like a million dollar bankroll or something. Are there any poker players that have million dollar bankrolls? Those web trend forecasting spyders have been predicting teh arrival of a poker player with a million dollar bankroll for some time now. I wouldn't be surprised if he was from texas.
