 Trollpro, Polar, Nightmare and Itio will be the only participants at a freakshowmeeting. There will be three soft chairs in the room where the meeting will be held, and one hard chair. No one can bring more chairs into the room. Trollpro and Nightmare will arrive simultaneously, but Polar and Itio will arrive individually. The probability that Polar will arrive first is 1/3, and the probability that Itio will arrive first is 1/3. The probability that Polar will arrive last is 1/3, and the probability that Itio will arrive last is 1/3. Upon arriving at the meeting, each of the participants will select a soft chair, if one is available. If Trollpro and Nightmare arrive and see only one unoccupied soft chair, they will flip a fair coin to determine who will sit in that chair. By what percent is the probability that Trollpro will sit in a soft chair greater than the probability that Polar will sit in a soft chair? This = harder than the other ones which SUCKED, let's see how many that can get this right

 Im not 100 % I understood the question correcly. As I understood it its "how much more likeley is it that Trollpro gets a soft chair than that Polar gets one?".
But yeah Trollpro will get a soft chair in 5/6 cases and Polar in 4/6 so I guess Chakras answer can be right too, dunno english well enough to be 100 % ^^. Except that he wrote it in negative.
