    Luck isn't involved. You're either better or you aren't.

    Depends maybe on how you define luck. In those Olympic sports where judging determines the winner, if you got an undeservedly low score that's not luck that's getting screwed.

    How would we even begin asking this question? How do we define luck for this exercise? How do we measure it?
