johnnyvol,
That has come up before in community discussions of CAPS, usually in the context of "reloading" - ending a pick and then remaking it in the same direction. About a year ago TMFCrocoStimpy did some data dives about that, and this is what he found:

[T]he effect of reloading is quite small. Only ~60 players had their overall ranking change by more than +-5, and NONE of the players in the leaderboard were in this group.

There is more if you want it in his post here: http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=25942642&sort=use... and on the CAPS Beta Board: http://boards.fool.com/Messages.asp?mid=24210606&bid=117....

Fool on,
Chris
