Expectancy problem - two games

John and Paul are both playing a game against different opponents.

The scoring in the game can range from 0 to 10 in whole numbers.

John has a 60% chance of scoring 3 points or more.

Paul has a 50% chance of scoring 3 points or more.

What are the chances of John outscoring Paul; of Paul outscoring John, and of them both scoring exactly the same?
