## Question

Game show on NBC. MSC 91A05? (that would be counting the Banker as a player – but I think it’s a computer that actually makes the offers). In talking about this game, people make it sound as if it takes some kind of skill to knock out the smaller cases first. Even if the models are allowed to look in the cases before coming out on stage, I doubt they’d have any useful tells. If I’m right, the strategy of this game comes after the first Banker’s offer. Can the Banker bluff? (i.e., is it possible that the Banker would make a better offer than what is in the case or is the Banker program geared to making the offer most likely to minimize payment?)
