Stellar; the winners are not always geniuses and the losers aren't always idiots.
Germany was a damned brilliant nation (still kind of are... but they're still in shell-shock from WWII or something). I'm actually rather proud of my German heritage. The Japanese were rather clever as well.
It's only the immature, ill-informed rants from dillusional minds that say "yeah we kicked ur but an now ur an eedee ot noob!1!!!1"
Though it is pretty funny to read up on the German version of the CIA.... Between the U.S. and the U.K. ... we had them so full of disinformation, double-agents, and meaningless babble that the Germans didn't know what the hell was going on.
Of course... they also made it too easy.... they had a bad habit of giving their projects code-names that actually related to the goal of the project........
My family is known for being very good at engineering-related concepts.... not poker.... so I guess it all fits.
