I hope my cool formatting doesn't get messed up when I hit "submit"...

A  B  C  D  E  F  G  H
\/     \/     \/     \/
A      C      E      G
\    /         \    /
A              E 
\          /
\      /
A

 

Now, if you want a probability tree, that will look a little more complicated...

AvB___A wins____AvC___A wins___AvE___A wins
\                              \                        \_____E wins
\                               \__C wins___CvE___C wins
\                                                    \____E wins
\__B wins___BvC___  etc...
