Is "pretty good" better than good and worse than very good OR worse than good and better than satisfactory?

E.G. He's a pretty good teacher. Emotion: smile
Such terms are very loosely used, and depend greatly on context.
For example, consider understatement. 'He won the Olympic 100 metres gold medal yesterday. He's a pretty good runner.'
