In 2 player russian roulette, alternating and not spinning the cylinder between shots, what's the probability the first guy will die? - Aug 9th 2008, 12:47 PMfrankdent1
Nevermind it's 50/50 because it's 3.5, which is between 3rd shot (player 1) and 4th shot (player 2). Although you'd think the guy who goes first would have a disadvantage.
