Hi mekriff,

But the luck usually plays in that you just might get into a situation where you outread the opponent, or just a situation that (if your opponent was a bot) you should lose every time but your opponent just handles it really badly.


Isn't this conflating luck with tactics? I think of 'luck' as purely chance, so maybe the interpretation issue is there (maybe you think of luck as an assemblage of factors, only one of which is pure mathematical chance, and other things like tactics, metagame etc. play a part).

Best,
Cardlinger
