But surely, if as a result of correctly naming the colour of their hat prisoners would get amnesty, rather than declaring their ignorance, they would have a guess. P1 would likely guess at white and have a fair chance of success. P2, hearing P1 get it right (or wrong) and hearing his answer would have a better idea, leaving P3 to apply not just logic, but also probability.

This is the kind of answer that used to really get Larry Kramer riled.
