Try the wet compression trick, squirt in a little oil , and if compression raises it is a ring issue not valves. Let us know how you make out/fix of not/etc

. Did you notice if the spark plug was cleaner then the other plugs?

Could be a headgasket. Have the coolant sniffed for exhaust hydrocarbons.
Could be the rings, although I doubt it. It's rare for one ring to go bad. Do the oil-squirt test to be 100% sure, but I still think it's one of the other two...

Another question - does it burn oil? or blow large amount of smoke at cold startup?
