 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Players A and B bet in a k-round game. Player A has an initial amount of money n. In each round, player A can wager an integer between 0 and what he has. Player A then gains or loses an amount equal to his wager depending on whether player B lets him win or lose. Player B tries to minimize player A's money at the end. The number of rounds player A can lose is r. a(n) is the maximum amount of money player A can have at the end of the game for k = 5 and r = 1.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,0,1,-1). FORMULA With a(0)=0, a(n+1)-a(n) is a periodic function of n with value = 1, 7, 8. a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-3) - a(n-4). - Colin Barker, Sep 11 2014 G.f.: x*(8*x^2+7*x+1) / ((x-1)^2*(x^2+x+1)). - Colin Barker, Sep 11 2014 EXAMPLE In the case of n=3: For the 1st round, player A bets 2. If A loses, A will end up with 16 by betting all he has for the last 4 rounds. If A wins, he has 5 and will end up with D(5,4,1)=16 per reference A247060. If A does not follow the proposed bet, he will have fewer than 16 at the end. So a(3) = 16.
