I don't think that's precisely right, Alexandre. If you win, you get to divide your winnings around amongst your opponents *as you choose*. You can choose to dump all the transfer/forfeit on a small number, thus going for the 'knock em out as soon as you can' strategy, or spreading them around, going for the 'weaken the whole damn lot' strategy.
