For example, I want to backstab someone with a running backstab. The other player does counter-backstab, and I want to counter that. How?

Don't be so damn obvious with your bs attempts

But that's the whole point...
I'm purposely trying to be obvious to condition my opponent.
In other words, I'm manipulating them to do a backstab counter, so I can counter that counter.

Sounds like you’re trying to over-complicate things...

Maybe try lock on strafe backstabbing, then when you see your opponent realize your fishing, there's a good chance he'll unlock and run behind you the same direction you're strafing. Then when he does this, YOU unlock and strafe behind for a bs. I've done this a couple times and it works mostly on bad-average pvpers.
