We find that estimates obtained(More)
In the lowest unique positive integer (LUPI) game, players pick positive integers and the player who chose the lowest unique number (not chosen by anyone else) wins a …xed prize. We derive theoretical equilibrium predictions, assuming fully rational players with Poisson-distributed uncertainty about the number of players. We also derive predictions for(More)

In order to replicate a study the data needs to be accessible and all processing of this data needs to be reproducible. Specifically, the handling of deviating data points, also known as outliers, needs to be documented in(More)
