The correspondence between Pascal and Fermat is one of the most famous milestones in the history of probability. They differed on how to solve the problem of dividing stakes, but they arrived at the same answer. Their different approaches were both rooted in a long history of reasoning about games, but Pascal's was more purely game-theoretic and has something to tell us about our current troubles with p-values.
