Optimal Strategy at Decision Points in Singles Squash.
Renick, Jobyann
The optimal strategy at decision points in the singles game of squash played by North American rules is specific to the scoring system and the tie point at which the decision must be made. The actual decision should be based on the scoring potentials of the two players, from which projected outcome values of various length games are derived. One of the most interesting points from this analysis of tie points in squash is that the better player does not always increase his/her advantage by choosing the longer game. From the projected outcomes, the circumstances under which a player should choose the set and no-set options are determined, providing the optimal strategy for decision points in singles squash. This optimal strategy provides a player with the best possibility of winning a game. (Author/JS)
