A Parable On Leverage

(Paraphrased from Richard Grove, where I first heard it):

What if I was to tell you that if I were to face eight chess grandmasters simultaneously I could defeat at least half of them? Would you bet on me, or against me?  Consider this, I would be able to essentially pit one grandmaster against the other, by mirroring the moves made by one, and using it against the other, thereby being able to defeat at least half of my opponents despite using only my opponents minds and energy as the tool for my success.
