@Jon Peterson: A winning strategy also is one which guarantees many different people to win money in short runs - in paricular if these people cannot be distinguished.

comment Is there a good reason why a^{2b} + b^{2a} <= 1 when a+b=1?
That can be excluded by the continuity of the function and the fact that the function between 0 and 1 has only three maxima.

@Safoura: The function has the property $f(\frac{1}{2}+ \delta) = f(\frac{1}{2}- \delta)$. So, if it goes downhill on the right-hand side it goes downhill on the left-hand side too.
