Need help with table.insert

Hello,
I want to have a table like this:

twinnerBetAmounts = {
name = points,
name2 = points2,
name3 = points3,
etc
}

I want to insert this in the table:
v (name) = vbetAmount (points).

This is what I tried to do, but it is not working, because table.insert can just insert a value:


for k, v in paitrs( player.GetAll() ) do 
table.insert( twinnerBetAmounts, v = vBetAmount )
end

Does anybody can provide a solution for me to insert a key and a value?
