I believe the assumption of rating would allow you to beat someone 1 class higher than you 1 out of 4. Based on this assumption and you being a class B player then:Beating an A player: 1/4 = 0.25 = 25%Beating an Expert: 1/16 = 0.0625 = 6.25%Beating a Master: 1/64 = 0.0156 = 1.5%Beating a Senior Master = 1/256 = .0039 = 0.39%But this is also assuming that 1/4 is correct. I heard this from a Master and it seems somewhat realistic. So the poison idea might be your best chance.
