What's the most money possible to have?

Rules:
-Have the most money available at one time (money that is somehow spent or lost mid-turn does not count towards a later total)
-Has to be a legal game of Dominion (finite piles, Colonies only if there's Prosperity, can't have three piles gone, stuff like that)
-Kingdoms, shuffle luck, opponents, orders of piles, and all that is up to you.
-Harder-yet-simpler mode: No Black Market allowed

I feel like this must've been done already but a quick search didn't find it.  I also feel like I missed a bunch of edge cases that should be rules.  But I'm curious how horribly you can break it!

I was feeling like a cool dude the other day when I got to $50 in the course of normal play, but then I saw a post just now that broke $100.

I'm guessing the challenge is to design a kingdom with the highest maximum finite amount of money? There are plenty of loops that can go infinite.

There are?  I'm not aware of any.

You can read up on infinite loops here: http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=18378.msg752424#msg752424. They're all pretty nifty and most of them can give you an unbounded amount of .

The simplest is to trash down to a single Baker and play it and pass the turn until you have n coin tokens.

I thought having at least 1 Prosperity in the Kingdom cards for Colony to also be out was never a rule, but merely a suggestion.  If so, would P-C still be off limits?

Also, why not 3 piles?  The game doesn't end until you end your turn.
