For conveniencewe definew=P(W).The figure shows the complete game tree through 2 points.In the third level we justabreviate by indicating the probability of wining from deuce.The nodes marked +1 and-1 indicate whether you won or lost the first point.Summing all the paths toWwe getw=P(W) =p2+p(1-p)w+ (1-p)pw=p2+ 2p(1-p)ww=p21-2p(1-p)5
