Lol, turns out I've already solved the a problem practically identical to the "Video Game Combos" in a Hungarian competition a few months ago. So much for the originality there :D Still submitted to make 100% sure, but yeah it's the same.

    Look at discussion.

    Easiest explanation in my opinion goes as follows. Task is about game. It's guaranteed that we have winning strategy (it's useful in some way in speeding solution up). Think about decision tree of this game. We have to print out optimal moves and then Bessie moves like in the input. So task is about finding path in this tree. We know Bessie decisions and we have to choose ours to be sure that we will win. Our decisions cannot just lead us to victory if Bessie moves like in the input, but we must be sure, that if Bessie'd change her move in some moment, the we'll still be able to win (possibly changing our future moves!).
