Spaceflight Could Save Laliberte Millions in Gambling Losses
Gambling911.com reports that since Guy Laliberte announced his plans to spend $35 million toÂ fly into space in September, he has cut back on online gambling – where he has been losing a fortune.
Innovative, entrepreneurial, a doting philanthropist Guy may all be, but a profitable high stakes online player he is not. All Guyâ€™s aliases – lady marmalade, patatino, elmariachimacho and ahtata, all hundreds of thousands of dollars in the red, have vanished.
Itâ€™s estimated that Guyâ€™s withdrawal means $10 million LESS going into the pockets of sharks Phil Ivey, Phil Galfond and Tom Dwan. His frightening deficits give a strong indication of the brutality of nosebleed stakes, because based on live performances, Guy doesnâ€™t even seem that bad. This is a man who played solid poker on GSNâ€™s High Stakes Poker season four, and has a handsome $696,220 4th placed cash at the WPT Bellagio.
That’s funny. He could pay for a third of his spaceflight just for what he loses in poker.
