Meaning, in case you don't know, that, behind 1-0 in a 5pt match the trailer has 42.5% match winning chances.  (so we are told by the creator of gnu's match equity table)

In the early 1980's I frequented a bg club in the Georgetown section of DC, and encountered a fellow named Kent Goulding who had a standing offer to spot anyone 1pt in a 5pt match for $100.    Lucky for him that was a bit beyond my gambling budget at the time.
