and if he loses, would this somehow mean he is a "bad player"?? How about if he wins this bet, but goes 1-3 (33% win percentage). Would this mean he is a good or bad player? How about if he beats someone in the first round of a tourney, and his opponent is a NTRP 2.5? Again, is he a good or bad player? Just wanted some clarification, because I don't recall the issue ever being he was "good" or bad". The issue was more revolved around the fact that he be-littled players beneath 5.0??? level (especially the 3.5 crowd), and stated he was "above them", when in fact he is around a 3.5 himself. Now, whether *YOU* define 3.5 as "good or bad" is your personal opinion.
