I beleive that if your going to score people on there placements in tourney, why not take the bad beat factor in to account. I mean who wants there ratings to drop when they get knocked out in the first 50 hands of a tournement, taking a hand like pocket A's all in and getting knocked out by the 2 high running flush from the guy at the table who called a 10 blind pre flop raise with a 9 2 off. i beleive the circumstances of the elimination should matter.
