Biggest stack you ever got?

This one I did not see, but one of the dealers told me a guy on 123 got up to like 4200 last week.

I don't know the guy personally, but played against him a few times. He is a really good lag player and his value bets are on point. Seems spewy to others, but there is a plan to his madness. He will 3 bet fish K6s in the CO vs their Ep open as a squeeze to get Hu or take down the pot and stack off on As6c4s board. Surprisingly he actually had the best hand, this was a 235 hand for 1k pot. I'm assuming he plays the same at 123 just with more fish. I've saw 2500 a couple of times and 3k once, this is the first I've heard of 4k+ at 123 with a 300 buyin cap.

The dealer said someone else reached 60k at the 5\10 game. But idk if this counts because they did a 9k flip. Some aggro Mexican guy. Apparently he bets like $10k a hand on the other side of the casino so just a big fish most likely looking to gamble that or the next phil ivey.

For me personally $2200 at 500NL and 1800 300NL. Usual session is about 6 hours. Not sure if ill ever break 4k mark given session length.

    I've gotten it up to $2,500 three times at 1/3 ($300 buy-in); only one of those sessions was 10+ hours. Just passed $3,000 once at 2/5 (up to $1,000 buy-in), but that's only impressive since I don't play 2/5 as much :).

    I did play one time at the 1/3 game against the biggest maniac that I can ever recall seeing. Bought in for about $2,000 after rebuys. Basically shoved every hand, ran it up to around 4K. Lost it all. Kept rebuying (in for about $5,000), then ran it up to around 5K. Unfortunately, I had to leave (he was down to around $2,200 when I left).

    High stake player who's a little high having some fun it sounds like. Saw a guy at a 1\2\2 game came and asked "what game is this?" Dealer said 122 and he said I would like to try this. Puts 9 chips on the table. Looked like play chips, I've never saw them before. I don't remember exactly how he bought in because it was a $200 cap game and each chip was worth $25,000. Nice guy just blowing some money. He didn't lose too much actually. Played well for his first time trying to stick with open ended or TP. Not calling down middle pairs or gutters. Win a $20 pot and tip the dealer $20, buys a soda for $80 etc. Just really friendly to everyone at the table and the staff.

    I can't remember the limit of the game but I'm pretty sure it was 2-3-5 but it was uncapped buy in. I had just spent the last 50+hrs playing 4-8 limit and was up like $78 not including food and beer (which of there were many). Anyways the card room i played at closed on sundays at 2am so we went to another one about an hour away. I bought in for $300 and cashed out over 3K. I remember bluffing some guy with a K9o after the board paired on the turn, he tanked for a couple mins showed top pair and mucked. That gave me all the confidence to play in a game i had no business in. Nowadays I'll get up if i get near $2K

    Oftentimes, yes. Not in this case, though. I later found out that he plays in a casino about two and a half hours away pretty frequently. Never higher than 1/2 or 1/3, and always loses big. He was drinking the whole time.
