Clearly you are the one who is being naiive here. They absolutely mailed it in with the expressed intent to end up with Luck. They planned it they executed on the plan and it worked like a charm. The owner was even emailing people. As an organization they are now set for the next 15 years as a direct result.
But carry on carrying on. You live in a simple world. I guess you never actually played chess or if you did you missed the class where the whole concept of of sacrifices was covered.
