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 = 4 and r = 2.
With a(0) = 0, a(n+1) - a(n) is a periodic function of n with value = 1,1,2,1,1,2,1,2,1,1,3.

FORMULA
a(n) = floor(12*n/11) + floor((4*n+1)/11).
a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-11) - a(n-12). - Colin Barker, Sep 11 2014
G.f.: x*(3*x^10 +x^9 +x^8 +2*x^7 +x^6 +2*x^5 +x^4 +x^3 +2*x^2 +x +1) / ((x -1)^2*(x^10 +x^9 +x^8 +x^7 +x^6 +x^5 +x^4 +x^3 +x^2 +x +1)). - Colin Barker, Sep 11 2014
