V is MAWG who went to the Jamie Gold school of poker. He would frequently talk in hands where he takes an aggressive action, telling people their hand is no good, or claiming that he has 2 pair, straight, etc. He had shown a few times, and did have what he claimed to have had. He also told a story about playing a hand for $300 blind preflop at another casino, and had said that he would bluff off his stack by the end of the night.
