you are last place in a competitive three-player.your final turn in the rail stageno turn will move you out of last.first and second is very close.you could;a) make a benign move, trying not to effect the out-come b) pass c) make a normally competitive move if c) would that move include over-building a tile and, in effect, decide the winner of the game?

I would make the "normally competitive" move. To me it is good play to make a move that increases my score, even though it doesn't increase my rank. If I had a choice between two moves that increased my score by equal amounts, and one of them changed the winner and one didn't, I'd generally choose the one that didn't change the winner.There was a thread on BGG recently about "kingmaking". It drew quite a lot of discussion.

i'm wondering if players change their approach when competing in a 'rated' game.

For me, no, I have the same approach in every game.
