comparing values based on differences in rock paper scissors

```
#Note: this was worked out on paper before hand
#associate numbers with game input
gameDict = {
'R':1,
'P':2,
'S':3
}
#turns counter
turns = 0
while True:
#ask input
playerOneInput = input('Player 1, choose R, P, S: ')
playerTwoInput = input('player 2, choose R, P, S: ')
#retrieve game dict values
dictVal1 = gameDict[playerOneInput]
dictVal2 = gameDict[playerTwoInput]
#we use a difference among dict values to compare winner
difference = dictVal1 - dictVal2
#player one wins when diff are [-2,1,1]
#player two wins when diff are [2,-1,-1]
#based on the differences of dict values, either player 1 or player 2 wins
#change or to in
if difference in [-2,1]
print('player One wins')
elif difference == 0: #draw if difference is 0, S & S, 3 - 3
print('draw')
else:
print('player Two wins')
#break out of loop after 7 turns
turns +=1
if turns == 7:
break
