The first two of these facts show that if player X receives an E-triplet on a given
turn, then player Y can ensure that X receives an E-triplet on every subsequent
turn. Therefore, X must always create a non-E-triplet, by the first of the three
facts.


Why is that?Shouldn't he try to create a non-E-triplet since this is the LP for Y?
