No, not a threading problem. The problem is all of this code runs on the UI thread. The UI thread also handles the apps message pump, where Windows send messsages to your application, like Paint messages.

So, you set the label text to "READY", then you put the UI thread to sleep, so it can't possibly get and handle the Paint message (your code gets this as a Paint event) and your label never gets painted. The thread wakes up and the next line of code sets the label text to "SET" and then goes to sleep again. You get the idea.

Meanwhile, all these paint messages are piling up in the message queue, waiting for your UI thread to get around to picking them up, which it won't do until your Click handler code finishes and returns. Once that happens, the UI thread gets to the messages and process them all. All the Paint messages are processed and you see the final result, the label text changing to "FIRST PLAYER'S TURN".

Oddly enough, the solution is a threading problem.

In order to keep the UI thread from stalling, you have to move your Sleeps to another thread and ship the setting of the Label Text property back to the UI thread, called Invoke. You can read up more on the technique
here[^].
