Wins 2 - wins all (Posted on 2010-05-06) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Three backgammon players of equal game skills compete for a prize.
The prize will be awarded to the winner of two games in a row.
A and B, following a drawing, play the first game, then the winner will face C.
Next game, if needed, will be by C and the player who lost the 1st game and so on.
Determine a priori chances of winning for each of the 3 players, assuming Lady Luck treats them without discrimination.

Rem: There are no draws in backgammon.

Hi, Danny

'The prize will be awarded to the winner of two games in a row."

You have missed the  "in a row" statement, i.e. one after another.

Please reassess the puzzle and confer other  peoples' solutions.

The official solution will be provided in the nearest future
