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?

I wish a had a more interesting signature line.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
