# Cut-Chocolate

Heidi and Victor have a $$2 \times 3$$ chocolate bar shown below:

To decide who gets the chocolate, they play a turn-based game, without changing the $$2 \times 3$$ rectangular configuration of the chocolate bar:

• In Heidi's turn, Heidi breaks any of the pieces along a horizontal line.
• In Victor's turn, Victor breaks any of the pieces along a vertical line.
• Whoever runs out of moves first loses.

Assuming that both Heidi and Victor play optimally, who wins or loses the game?
