People playing checkers, same number of wins

Pat and Chris played five games of checkers.  Each won the same
number of games, but there were no draws (ties), nor were there
any unfinished games.

How is this possible?

Hi;


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
