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 (*).

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.
