So i have a database with player and their rank. So when rank(5) player challenge rank(3) player and rank(5) beats rank(3). Rank(5) gets rank(3) ranking. What is the best way to do this without doing like 6 or 7 queries.

Code:UPDATE players AS p1, players AS p2 SET p1.rank = p2.rank WHERE p1.rank < p2.rank AND p1.playerid = $winnerid AND p2.playerid = $loserid
