Résumé:   In the canonical model of bounded rationality each player best-responds to their belief that other players reason to some finite level. We propose a novel behavior that reflects the player’s belief that while other players may be rational, the player cannot model and hence predict the behavior of others. This encompasses a situation where a player believes that their opponent can reason to a higher level than they do. We propose an identification strategy for such behavior, and evaluate it experimentally.
