This summary is completely wrong for any Condorcet scheme.
A dominates B (by a reduced margin of 3.3 to 0 rather than 10 to 0)
A dominates C (also by a reduced margin)
B dominates C (by its original margin)
A thus wins by dominating all others.
Whatever you're using to declare B the winner above, it's not a Condorcet
The rest of your message, and the conclusion that Condorced+Supermajority
isn't possible is thus invalid.
