I do not come from a mathematical background, and hope you can answer this (probably very basic?) question.
I got a game group with friends where we play board games, normally 3-6 players each night. I have created an application which keeps track of game history, and keeps track of a Elo rating for each player. These Elo ratings can be used to determine the winning probability between two players.
However, how can I use these winning probabilities to get the probability of a player winning a multi-way game?
Let's say we have a three way game, two players with a Elo rating of 1200 and one with 1400. The two with 1200 have 50% chance of winning against each other and the 1400-player has a 76% chance of winning in a heads up match against a 1200-player. How can I find the probabilities that each player wins the three-way game?
