The money winning strategy (Posted on 2021-01-01) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Alice challenges Bob for the following game:

First Bob takes 29 numbers from the set {0,1,2,3,...,1024}, then Alice takes 28 of the remaining numbers. Then Bob takes 27 numbers and successively, until only two numbers remain. Alice will have to give Bob the difference between these two numbers in euros. What is the largest amount Bob can win, whatever Alice's strategy is?
