I'm going for 3 because, well, 3 times the charm, no?

They've demoed a SF on first attempt. Maybe a two engines have issues so they abort and try after tweaks/swaps. 2nd attempt success. I'm maybe 60/40 for 1st/2nd attempt getting to launch.

I go with three, due to SpaceX history of being just a little conservative on limit settings in the past.  This will be the second attempt at all engines firing on the booster, after a remarkably successful wet dress rehearsal.  But doubling the thrust level just might introduce more sensor-limit warnings that might trigger an orderly abort before release.  I hope not, but that's my rationale for thinking there will be one or two false starts.

Most poll respondents picked three launch attempts/scrubs for the Booster 7/Ship 24 stack, but as it turned out, the first Starship launch was scrubbed just one time.
