Is it better to go first in Russian Roulette?

Discrete Mathematics Level 3


There are six chambers in the revolver. The initial position of the bullet is equally random between positions 1 through 6: the chamber is spun only once at the start of the game. The first player points the gun at himself and pulls the trigger, passes it to the other, they pull the trigger and pass to the other player and repeat until the bullet fires.

Which player has better odds of survival?
