In this case we will say that player I wins the g a m e p i f f ( p ) = 1 and that II wirts the garne p if f ( p ) = O. A g a m e < A, B, ~ ) is called determined if inf sup ~(a, b) = sup inf q~(a, b), bEB aEA aEA (,) bEB and the common value of both sides of this equation is called the value of the garne ( A , B, q~). The assertion that a garne is determined is also expressed by the phrase the garne has a value. Note: if the garne is not determined, then the left-hand side of (*) is larger than the right-hand side of (*).

1 [Zermelo (1912)]. In Chess, either (i) White can force a win, or (ii) Black can force a win, or (iii) both players can force at least a draw. We say that a player can force an outcome if he has a strategy that makes the garne terminate in that outcome, no matter what his o p p o n e n t does. Z e r m e l o ' s T h e o r e m says that Chess is a so-called " d e t e r m i n e d " garne: either there exists a pure strategy of one of the two players (White or Black) guaranteeing that he will always win, or each one of the two has a strategy guaranteeing at least a draw.

A behavior strategy is a single book of a different sort. Although each page still refers to a single information set of the player, it specifies a probability distribution over the choices at that set, not a specific choice. We will see below that a behavior strategy is essentially a (special kind of) mixed strategy.
