We propose a single loop diagram and use it to devise a single loop matrix method to computationally solve the Penney-Ante game. This method avoids the nuances of repeated use of conditional probability and Markov chain representations. We remove the limitations of Conway’s trick as applied to a fair coin and generalize the method where the coin is allowed to be biased. A uniform random number generator is used to simulate the game and formulate implicit mathematical relations to explore nontransitivity.
