Some def are, but i don't think it applies to all of them.
I would think that the really good players would not show it, and the ones who want ppl to think they are really good would.
This is very true.
It doesn't reflect skill in any shape or form. Obviously the small minority who are regs who play a lot of volume show a profit but it's quite easy to know who are good and bad players. It doesn't really affect how I play vs them either as it shouldn't really.
If anything, anyone showing say platium, supernova at micros I will check them out. I'm not surprised to often find they are losing rich players who play lots. The same applies to mid/high limits, some just can afford to play the high limits and earn a high status but it doesn't mean they are particuly great. Someone with supernova elite "usually" is a good player but I guess if you're playing someone of that status you have to be good yourself. I woulden't read much into it in the lowest levels.
