You play three times. Whoever wins the most (i.e. twice) is the winner.

Black Books! Hilarious scene. :D Exactly what Steven2 said: best of three attempts (ie. 2 successes). Manny (A) lost the original bet - if he attempts again, that will only put him at 50% success, so three attempts will put the odds in his favour, and technically Manny wins the ten pounds. He wants to write off his initial failure as a fluke.

"Best of three" is suggested because he lost the bet (bet of selling or not selling). To have a chance of winning the bet, a best of three attempts (2 or more of 3 wins) is suggested.
