Abstract

In contrast with Apesteguia and Palacios{Huerta (2009), we provide laboratory evidence that strictly competitive environments are characterized by a second-mover advantage. This finding is obtained in a setting, a free-throw shooting competition among pairs of professional basket players, which overcomes the major limitations of Apesteguia and Palacios-Huerta's randomized natural experiment.
