Marbles Quiz Puzzle

We overheard two boys playing marbles near Quizmaster Towers, and this is what they said.

A: I've got more marbles than you have!

B: I bet you haven't - see for yourself

A: Okay, you have got more than me, but I'm the better player so I'll soon have more than you

B: You think so?

A: I do, and if I win three marbles from you I'll have twice as many as you'll have

B: You're on

[pause while they played]

A: Oh you're so lucky, I've never seen such a fluke

B: Told you I'd win

A: Yes, but you only won two

B: I might've won only two from you, but now I've three times as many marbles as you have

A: Right, you won't beat me again

[pause while they played again]

A: Oh I give up

B: Well you're going to have to give up, as I've got all your marbles

So how many marbles does player B now have?
