Part V of the second edition of Pierre R\'{e}mond de Montmort's Essay d'analyse sur les jeux de hazard published in 1713 contains correspondence on probability problems between Montmort and Nicolaus Bernoulli. This correspondence begins in 1710. The last published letter, dated November 15, 1713, is from Montmort to Nicolaus Bernoulli. There is some discussion of the strategy of play in the card game Le Her and a bit of news that Montmort's friend Waldegrave in Paris was going to take care of…

Bertrand's analysis of baccarat

Joseph Bertrand [1822–1900], who is often credited with a model of duopoly that has a unique Nash equilibrium, made another significant contribution to game theory. Specifically, his 1888 analysis of

This paper examines the circumstances surrounding the first historical appearance of the game-theoretical concept of mixed-strategy equilibrium. Despite widespread belief that this concept was

A note on Bertrand’s analysis of baccarat

It is well known that Bertrand’s analysis of baccarat in 1888 was the starting point of Borel’s investigation of strategic games in the 1920s. We show that, with near certainty, Bertrand’s results on
