I am making a small game an I want to know how do I keep loping it until they get the right answer?

first_name = input("hello there, what is your first name   ")
if first_name == "ol, tate":
    print("Guess what, thats the correct name you win!!!")
else:
    print("bummer! not correct")

[MOD: Added ```python formatting -cf]

Hi, there I have looked into your problem and come up with the solution below! In this solution, we ask for the name before it enters the loop and again only if they get it wrong.

If they guess right they will exit the loop and get the winner's statement.

Hope this helps!

first_name = input("hello there, what is your first name   ")
while first_name != "ol, tate":
      print("bummer! not correct")
      first_name = input("hello there, what is your first name   ")
print("Guess what, thats the correct name you win!!!")
