$127 million in a single year was gambled away. I would shoot myself. :o

Makes me feel not-so-bad after losing a whopping $1,000 in a single session of 10/20 limit Texas Hold'em. But that was about 12 years ago. (Interestingly, also at a Harrah's casino).

My biggest loss is $500. Even that felt like a swift kick to the scrotum. Also was at a Harrah's.

Damn, if he was going to throw away 127m, he probably could have bought this boat and given it to me:
