"Soundararajan was drawn to study consecutive primes after hearing a lecture at Stanford by the mathematician
Tadashi Tokieda, of the University of Cambridge, in which he mentioned a counterintuitive property of coin-tossing:If Alice tosses a coin until she sees a head followed by a tail, and Bob tosses a coin until he sees two heads in a row, then on average, Alice will require four tosses while Bob will require six tosses (try this at home!), even though head-tail and head-head have an equal chance of appearing after two coin tosses."

I think Quantum is kind of misrepresenting the problem. The completion constraints on Bob and Alice aren't identical. Which is why the probabilities are different. At least as far as I understand the problem.
