Tug of War Championship
Download Soultion View the Problem

This year's Skadron Prize competition is a tug of war contest between two computer subprograms submitted by the contestants. Two contestants' programs will take turns "pulling" by moving the centerline marker an amount determined by the submitted subprograms. A double round-robin style tournament will be used to determine the grand champion. Each contestant will play each of the other contestants twice, so that all players have the chance to move first once against each opponent. A win scores 1 point, a loss scores 0 point. The contestant with the highest score at the end of the tournament wins the championship. In case of a tie, there will be one tiebreaker with a smaller energy allocation.
