    Smile LD handicapped TH 3-5 points

    I think LD basically handicapped TH 3-5 points every match before real starting to play ...


    Does the above wording sound valid to you? If yes, what does the bolded part refer to? Thanks.

    What does this refer to?

    I believe that at every match LD [Person A] put a handicap of 2-5 points on TH [person B] before beginning to play

    Thanks, Anglika.

    It's a badminton game between two players.
    But I'm still not sure what you mean by the bolded part.
    Does it mean roughly that LD let TH begin at 3-5 points (and the former still had no problem in defeating the latter) when the game started?

    It is not quite clear but it probably means that the handicap depended on the opponent's skill at the game, so it is a handicap of between 2 and 5 points in the opponent's favour.
