Well, there was no doubt that Emperor knew that Anakin was going to tell Mace about what he had discovered. so i think the Emperor knew Anakin would probably show up but either way Palpatine handled the other 3 Jedi like nothing. but Mace really surprised him i think so Mace was probably pretty strong.
