    Average number of points and wins given a win rate.

    Ok I found the solution somewhere at least for the points. We have the probability of wining pw, and of losing pl. We get the probability of going 0-3, 1-3, ..., 7-2, 7-1, 7-0 like: Probability of going 0-3: pw^0 * pl^3 Probability of going 1-3: pw^1 * pl^3 Probability of going 2-3: pw^2 * pl^3...

    I'm playing a game in which there is an event that I can keep playing until I reach 3 loses or 7 wins.
