This is the forty-seventh puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Madame Lapushka. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which player E won a match against.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You can tell from the scoreboard that B didn't lose a single match, so it can't be her. But even if you knew everyone's win and loss totals, it wouldn't tell you who won and lost to whom.

    Is there anything else this scoreboard can tell you?

Hint Two
    Each of the six ladies played each of the others once, so you can work out how many matches were played in all.

    Two of the matches ended in draws, so you should be able to work out how many matches each player won.

Hint Three
    Out of 15 matches, two were draws. That leaves 13 wins between all the players. Take a good look at the scoreboard. There are already 13 wins listed between players A, B, C, D and E. That must mean that F didn't win any matches at all.

    Which means...

Super Hint
    F didn't win any matches at all, and she didn't play in either of the matches that ended in draws. In other words, she against every player.

    So the only person who lost against E must be...

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

You won't get anywhere just staring at the numbers on the scoreboard!

The completed scoreboard tells the whole story: poor F lost all her matches! Don't let it get you down, F! Onward and upward!

[edit] Solution

E won against F.
