I was reading Daniel Negreanu's blog and he wrote the following "In two days I'm down $441,000 which is nowhere near the biggest loser over that stretch. In fact, you can win half a million in an hour in that game, or lose it of course...... So while $441,000 is a lot of money in the real world, in that game it's not much of a figure at all. I'm totally comfortable with the figure personally and genuinely not worried about it. "
It got me thinking about how much money the players in that game have. Surely to play in a game where a game where you can win or lose $500000 in an hour then you need a huge bankroll. I am thinking $25-50 Million or something along those lines. Whilst i know there is alot of money floating about amongst the top players i just don't see where they get that kind of bankroll from. Assuming that the level of skill in the $4000/$8000 game is extremely high any player could surely go broke if they had a really bad couple of months.
My boredom in work reminds me why March 24th is such a big date in my calendar.
