Posters who have more vCash than other know more about tennis?

Now I just wagered some dough on the French open, but besides that. If somebody has say ‘vCash$4375’ and another poster has ‘vCash$120’ then the one with more cash knows more about tennis. The proofs there!
Now I know some don't gamble. And some don't have the nerve to put the money where their mouth is. But you can't go around the forums preaching on tennis when you have very little vCash to back it up.

Tsk. Everyone is what we royals call "New V Money". I come from a family of history and standing, we Wades are Old V Money.

you do lose it, but you're given $25 when you get to $0
and if you're quick enough you can get lots of $25's (just use that $25 and wait for next $25 when next match is put up

Good luck to my favs

I'm still not buying what you said. If you really wanted to lose it all you'd have zero.

I hang on pretty well in there with vCash for not following tennis anymore as close as I did before september 2004

It has a lot to do with taking risk and having luck

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

not really. i have no vcash coz i bet the opposite on this board than i do in real life - just like i did with PAW.

in real life the point is to win, pick a few upsets, but always maintain a profit margin.

on this board it's about the upset coz i don't care if i lose imaginary money.

Then you have Michael Jackson & that name speaks for itself, no hype needed at all.

Some posters use vCash to jinx their fav's opponents. Sometimes it fails , and you win some money

I can't think of a witty signature right now. I like turtles.

I’ll buy that, there’s a little luck involved in gambling. A player can get injured which you cannot foresee.

But I can’t see the risk in using judgement or knowledge in betting on which player will be victorious over the other. You have all the facts in front of you. Surface, heads-to-heads, whatever. So it can’t be all down to risk and luck.
Now I have very little knowledge about tennis, and have only been on here a short period of time, so how can I have amassed more winnings than those who are supposedly more knowledgeable than I?
You read in numerous threads posters telling other posters why playerA can’t beat playerB yet they have very little cash, incredible!

Don't buy this theory either.That’s why some never go under the $500 mark. They don’t want somebody pointing this out.
