I know we've been spending a lot of time on runouts lately, but
it's a rich statistical area and lots of people play them, one
way or another.
One preqequisite for a 'runout waiting to happen' is when there's a strong team late in the rotation with poorer teams before and (especially) after. You could call this a 'class sandwich'.
Can we assume, with more uneven competition, that this situation occurs more frequently in the early games? If so, we should see a higher occurrence of runout-type combos in the early games, vis-a-vis the same combos in later games.
Who'll go first on this one?
