So it would seem ()

I see that the probability that A has $400 at the end of 4 rounds vs the prob that B does is ((2/3)^3)(1/3) vs ((1/3)^3)(2/3) = 8/81 vs 2/81.
I suppose that the probability that the game is tied (each has $300) at the end of 6 rounds is greater than the probability that either A wins in 6 rounds or that B wins in 6 rounds.
Please send the spreadsheet.
