Simultaneous- Move Games with Mixed Strategies Zero-sum Games

2
Mixed Strategy Random choice of the pure strategies Pure strategy of probability distribution Suppose Player one has 2 strategies, A and B. Let p in [0,1] be the probability for Player one to play A, then 1-p is the probability to play B. When p=1, one plays A purely and when p=0, one plays B purely.

3
Expected payoff Suppose E plays DL with p=0.75, when N plays DL, E ’ s expected payoff is 0.75x50+0.25x90=60. Suppose N also plays mixed strategies with prob. q=0.2 for playing DL. Then E ’ s expected payoff is 0.2x50+0.8x80=74 for playing DL 0.2x90+0.8x20=34 for CC. 0.75x74+0.25x34=63.66 for mixed with p=0.75 Navratilova DLCC Evert DL50, 5080, 20 CC90, 1020, 80

4
For any p, E ’ s expected payoff is 50p+90(1-p)=90-40p when N plays DL 80p+20(1-p)=20+60p when N plays CC Note 90-40p>20+60p when p<0.7

5
Minimax Method p E ’ s payoff N ’ s DL N ’ s CC 0.7 90 20

6
If N mixes her strategies, E ’ s payoff is between two lines. For p<=0.7, N playing CC purely will minimize E ’ s payoff (Note E can guarantee a payoff equal to 20+60p) For p>=0.7, N playing DL purely will minimize E ’ s payoff (Note E can guarantee a payoff equal to 90-40p) E can choose p=0.7 to maximin to get 62 no matter N picks DL or CC

8
Maximin strategy (p, q)=(0.7,0.6) With N playing q=0.6, E ’ s expected payoff is 50x.6+80x.4=62 for playing DL purely 90x.6+20x.4=62 for playing CC purely With E playing p=0.7, N ’ s expected payoff is 50x.7+10x.3=38 for playing DL purely 20x.7+80x.3=38 for playing CC purely

9
N.E. in mixed strategy Theorem If a player would mix two or more strategies as the N.E strategy, the expected payoffs from playing those strategies purely (given opponents ’ equilibrium strategies) should be the same, as the equilibrium payoff under the mixed strategy.

For Evert 50q+80(1-q)>90q+20(1-q) if q<0.6 Pure DL (p=1) when q<0.6 50q+80(1-q) 0.6 Pure CC (p=0) when q>0.6 50q+80(1-q)=90q+20(1-q) if q=0.6 Any mix (p=0~1) when q=0.6

12
For Navratilova 50p+10(1-p)>20p+80(1-p) if p>0.7 Pure DL (q=1) when p>0.7 50p+10(1-p)<20p+80(1-p) if p<0.7 Pure CC (q=0) when p<0.7 50p+10(1-p)=20p+80(1-p) if p=0.7 Any mix (q=0~1) when p=0.7

14
Follow the theorem, E would mix if 50q+80(1-q)=90q+20(1-q) or q=0.6, so that she ’ s indifferent between DL and CC (both 62). And N would mix if p=0.7. Opponent ’ s indifference property. N.E. as a system of beliefs. Consider mixed strategy, then N.E. will be the same as minimax method.

When one has 3 strategies DLCCq-mix DL5080 50q+80(1 -q) CC9020 90q+20(1 -q) Lob7060 70q+60(1 -q) p-mix 50p1+90p 2+70(1- p1-p2) 80p1+20p 2+60(1- p1-p2)

16
E will mix the three if there ’ s a q such that 50q+80(1-q)= 90q+20(1- q)= 70q+60(1-q). However the answer is NO. It means E will only mix the two out of the three.

17
Case1: E mixes DL & CC only. From previous argument p=0.7 and q=0.6, and payoffs are 62 for E, 38 for N. When playing Lob purely with q=0.6, expected payoff=66, thus E will deviate. (0.7, 0.3, 0) cannot be E ’ s equilibrium strategy.

18
Case2: E mixes DL & Lob only. E will mix the two when 50q+80(1- q)=70q+60(1-q) or q=0.5. For N to mix, when 50p+30(1- p)=20p+40(1-p), or p=0.25. Payoffs are 65 and 35 respectively When playing CC purely with q=0.5, expected payoff=55, thus E will NOT deviate. [(0.25, 0, 0.75), (0.5, 0.5)] is a N.E.

19
Case3: E mixes CC & Lob only. E will mix the two when 90q+20(1- q)=70q+60(1-q) or q=2/3. For N to mix, when 10p+30(1- p)=80p+40(1-p), never. Actually N will play CC purely since CC dominates DL when E mixes only CC & Lob. In equilibrium, E will not just mix CC & Lob.
