In the mean time, consider the following:

After having won the duel against Mr. Black and Mr. Brown, Mr. White takes
their share of the bank robbery loot and goes back to the gang's hideout. Once
there, Mr. White is confronted by Mr. Pink. Mr. Pink is mad at having been left
out of the duel, so he demands that Mr. White challenge him to a good
old-fashioned game of Russian roulette. 

Mr. Pink, who is an even better shot than Mr. Black was, takes an empty
six-shot revolver from his small arsenal of handguns, loads a single round into
one of six chambers, spins the cylinder, and hands the pistol to Mr. White. 
Mr. White is to go first and they will take turns until one of them dies. Mr.
Pink offers to go first in exchange for *all* of Mr. White's loot, recently
upgraded to 3 million dollars. Mr. White notices Mr. Pink is gently stroking
the Desert Eagle .50 automatic he has holstered at his waist in anticipation of
any funny business. What should Mr. White do?
