Most probably, the pollee will ask "how certain am I that partner knows
I am playing Flannery?" in which case you say "not certain at all". If
pollee does not ask anything like that, you ask a second question "what
if you're not absolutely certain you are playing Flannery?".
The LAs will be determined by the answers to those questions.

And the knowledge that you have not firmly established system is AI to you!
