"patatino" has dropped an additional $680k to the high stakes cash games in August, bringing his total losses for the year up to a staggering $2.8 million dollars.
That's bad, but not as bad as "lady marmelade". "lady marmelade" has dropped over $3.1 million dollars so far in 2008 over 25,891 tracked hands.

"patatino" and "lady marmelade" are both rumored to be accounts that belong to billionaire Guy Laliberte. It's hard to think of anyone else that could sustain such huge losses but still keep playing.
