It's been proved convincingly that win/loss give much better results. We
have debated why on this list and we can speculate, but the evidence
speaks for itself. My theory is that 6 wins and 4 losses is much better
than 5 BIG wins and 5 small losses. If you run a marathon they go by who
reach the finish line first, not how much his lead is.
