**Definition 1.** A family $\mathcal{B}$ of non-empty open sets in a topological space will be called $\pi$-base (or pseudo-base) if every non-empty open set contains at least one member of $\mathcal{B}$.

A $\pi$-base $\mathcal{B}$ is called *countable-in-itself $\pi$-base* (or locally countable) if each member of $\mathcal{B}$ contains only countably many elements of $\mathcal{B}$.

**Definition 2.** Let $X$ be a topological space. We will say that $X$ is *almost locally ccc*, provided every open set contains an open ccc subspace i.e., if the space has a $\pi$-base of open ccc subspaces.

Note that a ccc space is a almost locally ccc space.

**The Krom ultrametric space**

*Notation:* $\omega$ be the set of all non negative integers and for $n \in \omega$ let ${\omega}^{n} = \omega - \{0,1,2,...,n\}$, in particular $\mathbb{N}=\omega - \{0\}$, also let ${\omega}^{n}_{+} = {\omega}^{n} \cup \{\omega\}$.

For any sets $S,T$ and for $n\in {\omega}^{0}$ let ${}^{S}{T}{}$ be the set of all functions from $S$ into $T$ and let ${}^{n}{T}{}$ be the set of all functions from $\{0,...,n-1 \}$ into $T$.

For a set $S$ of sets and $n\in{\omega}^{0}_{+}$ let $$\downarrow {}^{n}{S}{} = \{\sigma\in{}^{n}{S} \hspace{0.1cm}: \hspace{0.1cm} \sigma(k+1)\subseteq \sigma(k)\hspace{0.2cm} \mbox{for all}\hspace{0.2cm} k\leq n\}$$

**Definition 3.** For any topological space $X$ and $\pi$-base $\mathcal{B}$ for $X$, the associated countable sequence space (or Krom space) $\mathcal{K}(X)$ is defined by
$$\mathcal{K}(X) = \left\{\sigma\in\hspace{0.1cm}\downarrow\hspace{-0.1cm}{}^{\omega}{\mathcal{B}}{} : \bigcap_{n\in\omega}\sigma(n)\not=\emptyset \right\},$$ and the topology is that given by the Baire metric, for $\sigma\not=\rho$ the distance $d(\sigma,\rho)=\frac{1}{n+1} $ where $n$ is the least integer in $\{m\in\omega : \sigma(m)\not=\rho(m)\}$.

A **base for $\mathcal{K}(X)$** is the family of all sets $[f]$, $f\in \bigcup_{n\in\mathbb{N}}\downarrow\hspace{-0.1cm}{}^{n}{\mathcal{B}}{}$ where, if $n<\omega$ and $f\in \downarrow\hspace{-0.1cm}{}^{n}{\mathcal{B}}{}$, then
$$[f]=\{g\in \mathcal{K}(X) : g\upharpoonright_{n} =f \}$$

**Some facts about the Krom space**

- Let $X, Y$ be topological spaces, then $X\times Y$ is Baire iff $X\times \mathcal{K}(Y)$ is Baire iff $\mathcal{K}(X)\times\mathcal{K}(Y)$.
- Let $X$ be a topological space, then $X$ is a Baire space iff $\mathcal{K}(X)$ is a Baire space.
- The Banach-Mazur game (or Choquet game) played on $X$ and the Banach-Mazur game played on $\mathcal{K}(X)$ are equivalents.

My question is the following: If $Y$ is an almost locally ccc space then its associated Krom space $\mathcal{K}(Y)$ is also almost locally ccc ?

* Remark :* In the article

*More on products of Baire spaces*of Rui Li and László Zsilinszky, they define the Krom space for a topological space $(X, \tau)$ as: $$\mathcal{K}(X) = \left\{\sigma\in\hspace{0.1cm}\downarrow\hspace{-0.1cm}{}^{\omega}{\tau}{} : \bigcap_{n\in\omega}\sigma(n)\not=\emptyset \right\},$$ where $\downarrow\hspace{-0.1cm}{}^{\omega}{\tau}{}=\{f\in (\tau\setminus \{\emptyset\}) : f(k+1)\subseteq f(k)\}$. A base for $\mathcal{K}(X)$ is the family of all sets $[f]$, $f\in \bigcup_{n\in\mathbb{N}}\downarrow\hspace{-0.1cm}{}^{n}{\tau}{}$ where, if $n<\omega$ and $f\in \downarrow\hspace{-0.1cm}{}^{n}{\tau}{}$, then $[f]=\{g\in \mathcal{K}(X) : g\upharpoonright_{n}=f\}$. The following theorem appears in the article:

**Theorem 3.1** Let $X, Y$ be a Baire spaces, and $Y$ almost locally ccc. Then $X\times Y$ is a Baire space.

In the proof of the Theorem 3.1, a first statement is made which is *$\mathcal{K}(Y)$ has a countable-in-itself $\pi$-base* for this it is first shown that $\mathcal{K}(Y)$ is an almost locally ccc metric space.

It is in this part that I am confused, because $\mathbb{R}$ is an almost locally ccc ($\mathbb{R}$ is ccc) and its Krom space $\mathcal{K}(\mathbb{R})$ is not almost locally ccc, because consider the non-empty open set $\mathcal{K}(\mathbb{R})$ and let $\mathcal{U}$ be a non-empty open subset of $\mathcal{K}(\mathbb{R})$, then there exists $f\in \downarrow\hspace{-0.1cm}{}^{n}{\tau}{}$ such that $[f]\subseteq \mathcal{U}$, $f(n-1)$ is a non-empty open subset of $\mathbb{R}$, so there are continuum non-empty open subsets of $\mathbb{R}$ contained in $f(n-1)$, so enumerate $\{A_{\lambda}\}_{\lambda\in\mathfrak{c}}$. Then the family $\{[f^{\smallfrown}A_{\lambda}]\}_{\lambda\in\mathfrak{c}}$ is an uncountable pairwise disjoint family of non-empty open sets contained in $\mathcal{U}$, so $\mathcal{U}$ is a non-empty open set which is not ccc.

My question is whether the example above is correct and if not, is there another way to understand the proof of the Theorem 3.1?

Thanks a lot.
