First or second? (Posted on 2017-05-23) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Two players alternatively erase some 9 numbers from the sequence 1,2,...,101 until only two remain. The player that starts wins x−54 dollars from the player that plays second, x being the absolute value of the difference between the remaining two numbers.

Would you rather be the first or the second player?
Explain your decision by providing your strategy.
