“Lady Marmelade” Takes Another Multi-Million Dollar Hit on Full Tilt
Another month has passed us by – October is now in the books.
October was a particularly spectacular month for high-stakes action on Full Tilt Judi Online. The $500/$1000 No Limit Hold’em games on the site have been especially entertaining to watch. Full Tilt has taken it upon themselves to add a couple of new $500/$1k NLHE tables to accommodate the demand – “Ivey Heaven” and “GusHeaven”.
We saw the record for the biggest ever online poker hand get shattered three times in one day in October. We saw our first ever $700k pot (won by Di “Urindanger” Dang). We saw Gus Hansen tear up the tables in October and bank a profit of nearly $3 million dollars. We also saw David Benyamine suffer one of his biggest one-month losses ($1.8 million dollars).
“Lady Marmelade” wasn’t the biggest loser on Full Tilt in October, but he was close.
“Lady Marmelade” dropped a total of $1.7 million dollars in October over just 4,927 tracked hands. This means that “lady marmelade” lost almost $350 for every hand that he played on the site in October, which is quite spectacular.
Since the beginning of 2008, “lady marmelade” is down approximately $5.82 million dollars on Full Tilt Poker.
The man behind the “lady marmelade” account? Guy Laliberte. Laliberte is the founder of Cirque du Soleil. He is a billionaire and one of the few poker players in the world who could sustain regular multi-million dollar losses and keep on playing.
The top five biggest losers on Full Tilt in 2008 are all accounts that are rumored to be played by Laliberte. This is obviously just pure speculation, but “lady marmelade”, “patatino”, “elmariachimacho”, “Bleachbum” and “noataima” are all rumored to be Guy Laliberte accounts. The top two accounts alone, “lady marmelade” and “patatino”, have lost approximately $9.8 million dollars in 2008. “elmariachimacho” has dropped $2.78 million, “Bleachbum” has lost $1.097 million, and “noataima” has lost $990k.
