Split or Steal?

Pretty awesome strategy:

This is a modification of the Prisoners' Dilemma in which Defect is only weakly dominant.  So if you think your opponent is going to Steal for sure, you have nothing to lose by playing Split.  Given how reluctant Left is even despite this, I'd say it was pretty important for the success of the strategy.

And another reminder that lies can help the lied-to.

  1. Awesome strategy. In other news, looks like you beat Cheap Talk to the punch. What's an economometrician to do?
