There is an art in begging and it involves doing it without actually appearing to do so.
For example) Sitting bid and coercing people to sell to you by using Jedi Mind tricks .
If you know in your heart of hearts that A play is a 100% lock , take all the cash out of your Credit Cards , checking accounts , rent , mortgage etc and load the boat and become the eny of all your neighbors and your neighbors' neighbors.
I don't mean this literally but only figuratively speaking. Steal all the cheapies you can. Maybe don't hype a play up so much and let things die down before you buy ( steal ) cheapies from newbies and wannabe pros.
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY SO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO MAKE SICK " DINERO " !!!
