Abstract: We demonstrate that iterated elimination of strictly dominated strategies is an order dependent procedure. We also prove that order does not matter if strategy spaces are compact and payoff functions continous. Examples show that this result is tight.

Keywords: game theory; iterated strict dominance; order independence
