I used to play online poker semi-professionally. I won several WSOP seats over the course of a month but cashed all the seats in for $12,000 each. I used to play $1000 sats so 1 in 12 people would win the $12k seats on Full Tilt. The day the DOJ shut down Full Tilt and Poker Stars were the saddest days of my life.

Online- Pokerstars $11 buy in, around 7500 entries, 2nd place for $5500
Live- I play 1-2 times a week now that we have casinos in Ohio. $1700 after 13 hr session playing $1/$2NL is best I've done.

Live poker my best win was $3217 playing the $2/$5 NL. Funny thing is it took less than 30 minutes. Took $500 to the table and flopped the nuts with pocket 8's (2-3-8) 3rd hand in and tripled up (against J-J and A-K) and maybe 15 minutes later flopped the nut straight with a straight flush re-draw with 6-7 suited and took down another huge pot and left just as I would have been in the blind.
You want to piss people off and get some really dirty looks you win 2 big hands in a few minutes then leave the table. One lady even said, "you can't leave now"
That was a good night.

For online poker I'm more of a small timer, I've never fully trusted online sites, but I have several memorable wins.

Biggest was a Pokerstars $5.50 NL tourney, finished 3rd for $1750 (around 8000 entries)
Next was 2nd in the Full Tilt daily dollar tourney for $1000 (over 7200 entries)
Most recently was winning one of the Pokerstars $100K Privilege Freeroll tourneys, $294.12 (over 9000 entries)
