so if you're not sure you can still get the 2nd guy, grab the most points!
I actually think you need to kill the person who is further away from you, not the one who has the most points.
For instance, if you were at 2000, and playing with 1000 and 2500, you kill the 1000 guy first and are then killed by the 2500, you end at 1993.92. You kill the higher guy and then are killed by the 1000, you end at 1984.5. So, it's not the guy with the most points, it's the guy who is further away from you, relatively speaking. That is, if you have 1000, 2000, and 3000, you still go for 1000, because you are twice his total in points, so you are further away than the 3000, who is only 1.5 times your points.
