In the old days of the Raj, the following conversation was heard:

'Hello, your name is Smythe isn't it? How about a friendly game of billiards?'

'Yes it is Colonel, I'm not very good though, Carstairs gives me a 25 point handicap when we play for 100 points.'

'Well, I'll just have to do better than that since I give Carstairs a 20-point handicap when I play him. Shall we play for £100 a game?'

How many points should Smythe be given as a handicap?
