But you're arguing that tripping should not be removed because it is beneficial in some way.

Luck manipulation, ie 'playing the odds' is definitely a skill. Just because you do not see it as a skill does not change the fact that it is.

The whole concept of tripping being bad because it only affects one person is a twisted logic.
I'd fully agree... if only one person could trip

When tripping does happen, it only effects one person negatively, and the other person positively. In that sense, it only effects one person.

Obviously, it's an effect on both people, but the negative effect is only on one person. I should have included the word "negatively" in the post you just quoted, but I feel the post retains its meaning regardless.

When one person trips, he is put in a losing position, and his opponent is put in a winning position. The opponent still has attacking options, while the person who tripped must first stand up. Because of this, he is effected negatively.

What about when player A is about to be hit, but then trips and the invincibility frames save him from being hit?
What about when the person who trips actually realizes it quickly and take the appropriate message on wakeup to avoid any type of retribution?
Its not as black and white as you make it sound.
Heads-up Texas Hold 'Em was solved several years ago

Hold 'em IS pretty much solved. You can get books that explain the statistical odds in any situation, and what the "correct" play is at any given moment. This is pretty much why it's considered a form of gambling and not just a game of skill because a dominating position often means you have like a 70 percent chance to win.

I do agree with have different definitions of "solved", but can you elaborate more on why you think RPS is a "solved game". I think any game with imperfect information is, by nature, impossible to be solved.
