Mexican Standoffs

Computer Science Level 1

A Mexican Standoff is a truel between three parties.

An interesting feature here is that the first person who shoots has a tactical disadvantage: he could be shot by the third person while occupied in shooting the second. Hence, no one has incentives to shoot first and everyone waits for someone else to begin.

Which of the following describes a similar concept in parallel computing?
