In Response To: The Donkey Corner #6 - Rollout + Analysis (Timothy Chow)
I agree with your comment about the style of play and its effect on performance.
I like to hear your opinion on the following observation. In my chess experience I have found that a difference in elo is a better indication of playing strength and thus a better predictor of performance at the higher levels than at the lower ones. As an extreme example, Magnus Carlsen, world chess champion and rated almost 2900 elo, hardly ever loses to a world-class grandmaster, 2700 elo. However, at the other end of the spectrum, a 1700 player will lose much more often to a 1500 player (or lower). It seems that the elo points are more meaningful as we go up the ladder.
Is there a similar situation in backgammon regarding PR? Is 1 PR difference more significant for strong players who play at 4 PR and under than the same 1 PR for players at the lower levels?
