Two MegaMinds play a game with 100 wooden sticks. The lengths of the sticks are 1,2,3,...,100 inches. Turn by turn, the players choose three of the remaining sticks which form a triangle, and burn them. The player that cannot make a move loses. Which player has a winning strategy (justify your answer)?
