Eh? I'd put Indy's "Seen it all before" a bit higher that 6! This guy (we learn in the second film, which takes place *before* the first film) almost had his own heart ripped out of his chest by a Thuggee priest. he saw the shankala stones glow of their own accord. Also, while *Harrison Ford* was sick at the shooting, *Indiana Jones* was just tuckered ut from various other fights. Certainly not enough to knock him down to a 6.

Klutzes can be useful too! He forced the Duke into a bad starting position.
The Duke may have been the best swordsman in the world, but he couldn't use
his sword. His other opponents have time to get ready, or stab him a couple
times, or whatever (there were more than one assassin, at least as I read
He is in a bad position vis a vis the other assassins, because his was prevented from using his "good" skill.
