Two players take turns naming numbers from 1 to 9. Players may not name numbers that have already been named. If at any point, three of the numbers named by one of the players adds up to exactly 15, that player wins. If neither player has won after all 9 numbers have been named, the game is declared a tie.

Who has the advantage in this game? There is a very clever way of answering this.
