Joe looks like the weakest to me:ReplyDelete
Tom beats Joe and Hillary beats Joe; the two of them are close to even; and Sue beats both Tom and Hillary (and, transitively, probably also beats Joe. So the ranking from top to bottom looks like it should be Sue, Tom/Hillary, then Joe.
Yeah, according to the information, Joe doesn't win any game.ReplyDelete
