Suppose tic-tac-toe game.
Step 1: Player I has 9 choises. Player II - 8 replies for any choise of I.
Step 2: Player I has 7 choises for any reply of II.
Then, Owen concludes, that at the spep 2 I has 9*7^8 pure strategies (disregarding all symetries).
My result is 9*8*7 pure strategies. I have already spent 4 hours tring to figure out the idea behind Owen's result and have understood nothing. May be somebody can help me? [Manage messages]
