At that point you may as well give every player in a given level, a handicap, like they do in golf.
Yea, you're the kind of player who by looking at the rankings/ratings pre-qualifies and plays out your match before it ever starts. You're my favorite kind of opponent, the one who's more concerned about the outcome before the match even starts instead of planning on how you need to play the next point.
