Three people play a game called "Odd Man Out." In this game, each player flips a fair coin until the outcome (heads or tails) for one of the players is not the same as that for the other two players. This player is then "the odd man out" and loses the game. Find the probability that the game ends (i.e., either exactly one of the coins will fall heads or exactly one of the coins will fall tails) after only one toss by each player. Suppose one of the players, hoping to reduce his chances of being the odd man out, uses a two-headed coin. Will this ploy be successful? Solve by listing the sample points in the sample space.
