i figured out that they start by showing the first cup down, the middle cup up and the last cup down but u get it as the oppisite.The first cup up, the middle cup down and the last cup up.That is a mean trick.

I understood the trick already but is it actually possible to get all three cups up? I don’t think it is

It Can’t be done b/c they show u a different way than how u start.
They flip one right before you start and you can only flip two. so there is now way possible to win.

@Anonymous: You are right! This was also mentioned in the first comment.

For me this puzzle is more to find out how it works and by that find your conclusion.

its impossible look on wiki

wiki says u start with 3 cups (odd number) and u can only turn 2 (even number) odd + even = odd which means it will never work.
