### Points Deduction Question

Why do players who finish 2nd sometimes lose more points than players who finish 3rd or 4th?

The Instructions wrote:At the end of each game, the winner takes points away from each loser. The points to be awarded is calculated as (loser's score / winner's score) * 20, up to a maximum of 100 points from each opponent.
As you can see, the amount of points won or lost has nothing to do with how long a player survives in a game. It is determined solely by the score of the winner and each loser.
