    A helpful analogous example to show that probabilities don't change:

    Suppose you and 5 friends are playing Russian roulette with a nerf gun where you don't spin the chamber between each turn. Which position is most advantageous?

    Player 1 = 1/6.
    Player 2 = (1/6 (player 1 lost)*0 (no more darts) + (5/6 (player 1 survived)*1/5 (1 dart of 5 remaining chambers) = 1/6
    Player 3 = (1/6)*0*0 + (5/6)(1/5)*0 + (5/6)(4/5)(1/4) = 20/120 =1/6
    ...

    What if you add more darts? Say there are 2 darts loaded into the nerf gun.

    Player 1 = 2/6 = 1/3
    Player 2 = (2/6)(1/5) + (4/6)(2/5) = 2/30+8/30 = 10/30 = 1/3
    Player 3 = (2/6)(1/5)*0 + (2/6)(4/5)(1/4) + (4/6)(2/5)(1/4) + (4/6)(3/5)(2/4) = 8/120 + 8/120 + 24/120 = 40/120 = 1/3
    ...
