This chapter demonstrates the difficulties one may face when looking for mixed Nash equilibria in larger examples. Moreover we see that though one player’s Nash equilibrium mix may draw out many more strategies than the other player’s corresponding Nash equilibrium mix, playing the mix may still be worthwhile in two-player zero-sum games.

Class Activity In the applet VNMPoker4, select values*m*and*n*, one of the computer opponents, and play 30 rounds.

This example is more complex than the case*S*= 2 discussed in Chapter 31. An analysis of the family of games gets too complex for general parameters
