Ok, so I have an electric motor powered by 3 phase AC. The rule is, the motor rotates one way say with phase A, B, C to terminals X, Y, Z

If any 2 are reversed, B, A, C or C, B, A or A, C, B, the rotation of the motor reverses.

Only one motor direction is preferred.

So are the odds just 50/50 or is it more complicated than that, trying to figure out beforehand which rotation the motor will take?
