If you're a top player, it's going to take a large amount of challenges. Because even players that are better than you are going to lose on luck sometimes - it is for this reason that you see brilliant players losing to mediocre players quite frequently.
A wise player once said that you can never exceed a 65-70% win rate against good players.
Lets say you're a good player, and even if someone wins against you 70% of the time. The chance of them beating you 5 times in a row is 0.7^5=0.16807~17% So according to my really rusty stats they'd need to challenge you about 6 times to expect a win. (It's a geometric distribution right?)

I'm talking about playing 6 lots of 5-game-series. If the player usually beats you 70% of the time, they'd have to play 6 lots of 5-game-series to expect a payout. Since they chance they'd a 17% chance to win 5 games in a row.

If you are really that good then you should make it win against you 3 times in a row....if you think about it if someone beats you 3 times it shows that the person is already better than you..so 5 times is just too much and with the luck involves even supreme players will lose. But nonetheless i like your idea and do you mind posting the challenge games that you get?

Why would I take on a challenge where I could win 2 of 3 games and still lose? That makes no sense.
Your challenge is not an actual challenge but one heavily weighted in your favor. A true challenge would be guaranteeing that you could win 5 straight against any opponent, or at least 4 of 5. Then I would give you some credit.

Richard, I think you've misinterpreted his challenge. I don't think he's doing it to prove that he's better - or even a good player. I think it's more like marc's tower challenge a few months ago.
I think he's providing a tool for challenging yourself, much like the single player levels or a 2v1 game. Although, since (even if you're better) the losses may only be luck, it's not a very good challenge.
