seems stupid... I was 4.5 games up on the guy going into this week and we were playing head to head.. I won 7-2-1 and somehow only gain 1 game? how does that even work?

108 - 98 = 10
68 - 67 = 1
10+1 = 11
11/2 = 5.5

Makes sense to me.

If it was that hard to go up by one game, imgaine how hard it'll be for him to make up 5.5 games. It's all relative.

EDIT: Actually, quick math shows you weren't ahead by 4.5 games before the matchup. 101-65-4 and 96-61-13 means it was only a 0.5 game lead. You gained 5 points on him this week. Maybe it was another guy that you were leading by 4.5 games??

maybe the 3rd place team was 6.5 games behind you and went 8-1-1 last week and is now the new second place team?
