Default Critical section problem

Shared variables:
var turn: (0..1);

initially turn = 0
turn = i - Pi can enter its critical section

Process Pi

while turn != i do no-op;
critical section
turn := j;
remainder section
until false;

Satisfies mutual exclusion, but not progress.

does this satisfy Bounded Waiting Condition...?
