Respond to the question: coin game strategy?

12/09/2004 09:49 PM by name withheld; coin game strategy
there are 5 players to this game, and each player gets 30 coins. the players play
1 0n 1 in a round robin format, playing each other player. the game consists of covertly putting your 30 coins into 3 columns of any size, then measuring your 3 stacks against your opponent's stacks, the player who has more higher stacks higher than other player wins, draws are permitted. so if you chose 10 10 10 for your piles you would beat a player who chose 20 10 0, and you would lose to a player who chose 12 13 5. is there an optinal strategy for this game?
