Consider a game where player 1 has three strategies (T, M, B) and player 2 has two strategies (L, R). Player 2 plays L with probability q, and consequently R with probability (1 ( q). Player 1 is trying to compare the payoff from playing the pure strategy B with the payoff from playing T with probability p and M with probability (1 ( p). The payoffs to player 1 are given below:

L       R

T  3, __    0, __

M  0, __    3, __

B  2, __    2, __

With player 2 playing a (q, 1 ( q) mix of strategies L and R, when will

player 1 receive a higher payoff from a (p, 1 ( p) mix of strategies T and M           than from strategy B? To answer this question in the most general way possible, you should

Calculate an expression for player 1’s payoff as a function of  p and q. Remember that player 1 is using a (p, 1 ( p) mix of strategies T and M and player 2 is using a (q, 1 ( q) mix of strategies L and R.

Use this expression to obtain conditions under which the (T, M) mix will provide player 1 with a higher payoff than B will as a pure strategy. These conditions involve comparing p to a certain function f(q).

Graph f(q) vs. q with relative accuracy. Use your graph to show what combinations of p and q will result in a higher payoff to player 1 from the (T, M) mix than from the pure strategy B.

Provide a specific combination of p and q for which player 1 receives a lower payoff from the (T, M) mix than from the strategy B.
