## Abstract in another language

Recently, we presented a two scale approach that uses Markov Decision problems (MDPs) to answer sport strategic questions. We have implemented our method for beach volley- ball by developing an appropriate gameplay-MDP and strategic-MDP for a certain strate- gic benchmark question. Following the two scale approach, the gameplay-MDP is simu- lated to generate the input probabilities of the strategic-MDP. The strategic-MDP is solved subsequently to answer the sport strategic question. We want to investigate in this paper whether the strategic-MDP probabilities can be directly computed from the gameplay-MDP or whether at least some bounds can be computed.

The derived bounds of this paper are applied to men’s beach volleyball Olympic final 2012 between Germany and Brazil and are part of the presentation Strategy optimization in beachvolleyball – applying a two scale approach to the olympic games.
