Skill ranking doesn't account for this.

Sitting at a table, I'm holding 88, and the flop comes Qx 6x 4x . He checks, as do I, turn comes a 10x  I have 505 left, player pushes me all in, I make the call because this player is loose agressive and know he's probably got nothing or very little. he flips over K9, so he has to draw to 12 outs  x2 = 24%(approx.)  the player hits his K on the river, and my tourney is over. I made the right call and got put out midway into the pack, losing me points. Skill ranking does not account for making the right call at the right time. Instead the player that put me out will get rewarded for their bad play.
