Playing with Provisional Ranked player

I’m trying to play a ranked game with “foote1” who has a numerical rank of 1150 (11.9k), while my rank is 954 (15.8kyu). When I challenge him, OGS replies with the message that I can’t play a ranked game with a player ranked more than 9 difference in rank. How can this be???

Did you give a handicap, like you did in the unranked game?
Note that you should be black and using the handicap stones, the reverse as what happened in the unranked game.

provisional are actually 5.7k ± 4.9
