Matches with more than 2.50 UTR difference are not included in the algorithm when the higher-rated player wins as expected (i.e., in a blowout). Why?

As the difference in UTR increases, so does the likelihood the higher-rated player wins the match easily. Our data indicates matches with a UTR difference of more than 2.50 are almost certain to be a blowout. Results like these are not indicative of either player’s skill level and are excluded by the algorithm.
