T.Kapela, Hazardowa wersja gry Penney'a

At first, Penney's game and hazard Penney's game was defined (some kind of games played with a coin). This article, in great part, is about hazard Penney's game. It shows how Engel's graphs can be used to calculate expected value of each player's prize. This algorithm and other algorithms concerning Engel's graphs were written in the matrix form. The last paragraph includes a few examples of hazard Penney's games which have interesting properties and which are many times in contradiction with our intuition.
