## Abstract in another language

We present a paradigm to model sports strategy optimization via Markov Decision Problems (MDPs). If one employs a detailed model, optimal policies can be prohibitive to compute. If one chooses a rather aggregated model, input probabilities can be impossible to determine. We suggest a way-out: To answer questions about optimal policies, we employ an accessible aggregated model. Its critical input parameters are estimated by simulations in a detailed model whose input parameters can be derived from observations during training hours. As an example, we characterize when risky play is better than safe play in beach volleyball.
