Plenty of Petanque

Pat A. bounced back to his 2.00 ranking - to give some context to 2.00; when you win a game, you get 2.00 plus some additional points on the score-spread. On a loss, you get only 1 point. Most people win and lose and so their average falls somewhere in the middle (1.5 to 1.80) range.

Pat has won so many games that his average reflects a player who has won every game at 13/12 (2 points) - not bad!

If Pat's average goes higher than 2.00, it'd mean that overall, he's won all of his games with a spread of 13/11; 13/10 and so on.
