Dilution of bad luck

I'd rather say that the new uma rule encourages players far behind at last place to play big and risky. But other players need to play much safer. Of course, your "luck accident" repelled you back to the middle, but higher uma reduces the effects of such events: they are "diluted" by the big uma.
