Abstract:

John von Neumann has discussed a zero-sum two-person game and he has shown the extreme optimal strategies for one of the players the hider can be calculated by solving a related assignment problem. An alternative treatment of the problem is now offered that is simpler and easily yields optimal strategies for both players.
