 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Consider the following game: A and B are two players, each having exactly one turn. A goes first. A chooses random numbers (uniformly distributed in [0,1]) and adds them until he stops. If the sum exceeds 1, A loses and B wins. If the sum of A's numbers does not exceed 1, then B proceeds as A did, choosing random numbers sequentially until the sum of B's numbers exceeds the sum of A's numbers. If the sum of B's numbers exceeds 1, B loses and A wins; otherwise B wins and A loses. The optimal strategy for A is to stop as soon as the sum exceeds this constant.
