The Game of Russian Roulette

Russian roulette is a game of chance, which performed with real guns can be lethal. The players put a single bullet in a revolver, spin the cylinder, place the gun against their head, and shoot.

The name of this game is formed by two words: "russian" is related to the origin of this game, whose first description appears in the novel A Hero of Our Time, written in 1839 by Mikhail Lermontov (1814-1841). The second word, "roulette", is related to the fact that russian roulette recalls the actual roulette game, as it is a game of chance (just like roulette), and the cylinder spinning is similar to the wheel of a roulette table.
There are two variants of russian roulette:

• After pulling the trigger, the revolver cylinder is spun again every time: so the chance of being shot are the same for both participants: about 1 on 6 (actually, some variables such as the weight of bullet, the direction of the spin, the angle of the gun when spinning the cylinder, should be taken into account).
Theoretically speaking, this russian roulette game could go on indefinitely, and the gamblers could bet on which player would survive and how many rounds the game would last.

• After pulling the trigger, there is no respinning. This version of russian roulette is a really lethal one: the chance of a player being shot at the first round is 1/6, but this chance changes every time the trigger is pulled. That chance raise to 1/5 in the second turn, 1/4 in the third and so on. After five turns the gun hasn't fired the bullet, the chance of being shot is 1/1, so that player will surely die (if russian roulette game is done with real guns).
