Lets say Anakin had lost the pod race...then Quin Gon woulda lost the queens ship..so what would they have done then? There was no sure way Anakin would actually win, so if he'd lost I'm guessing they woulda been pretty screwed. I'm just curious if Qui Gon ever considered that Anakin would actually lose and thought 'Well ok if Anakin loses we'll do this...'
he would have sold deathsticks to the children of mos espa.

Well he had warned OB1 earlier on in the movie not to think too far ahead and to focus on the present. I'm guessing that if Anakin had lost the podrace, then Qui-Gon would have come up with something then or waitedf for another "solution to present itself."
