Exact strong laws for simultaneous St. Petersburg games
Vol. 3 No. 3 (2008) P.381~P.390
Herein we show a simple way to make the St. Petersburg Game fair for both Peter and Paul. By just considering the minimum of two simultaneous games we establish a way that could easily have been understood three centuries ago. Similarly, we show how to play the St. Petersburg Game by observing the max-
imum of two concurrent games. After showing how to make this fair for both Peter and Paul by playing two games at a time we extend this so that they can play m simultaneous St. Petersburg Games.
Almost sure convergence, strong law of large numbers, exact laws
