High stakes online poker player David Benefield managed to lose $608K in just a matter of hours on Saturday.

Benefield lost $386K playing $500/$1000 PLO against Patrik Antonius and close to $240K against various opponents in the $200/$400 PLO Cap game, according to HighStakesDB.com.

This is not the first time Benefield has lost big in a single day. 

Back in August he lost close to $272K in 1766 hands in the $200/$400 PLO Cap game.  He has also won around $200K in two different days. 

The Arlington, Texas poker player has enjoyed some degree of success on the live poker circuit, mostly at World Series of Poker events where he has cashed 6 times and finished 6th at this year’s Event #17 - WSOP No Limit Hold'em.
