## Abstract in another language

We introduce a generalized framework of Markov Decision Processes suitable for sports games. The objective of these so called SportStrategy Optimization Markov Decision Processes (SSOMDPs) is to maximize the probability of winning a match. We investigate properties of SSOMDPs that help to determine an optimal strategy. However, there remains always the question on which level of detail a match should be modeled by an SSOMDP. We show how the same sports game can be modeled on different scales and how the advantages of different scales can be combined. This talk focuses on the generalized concept of the two scale approach and includes example models for the sport games Beachvolleyball and Tennis which were components of previous talks.
