Title: Real games and strategically selective coideals

Joint Work with Paul Larson

Abstract: A classical theorem of Mathias says that the Axiom of
Determinacy for Real games (AD_R) implies that
there are no tall selective coideals on omega. Farah introduced the
notion of a semiselective coideal and proved in ZF that these
are precisely those ideals on omega whose quotient adds a selective
ultrafilter. It is unkown whether AD_R implies the
non-existence of tall semiselective coideals. We introduce the notion
of strategically selective coideal, and show that tall strategically
selective coideals do not exist under AD_R. The
Axiom of Choice implies that the notions of semiselective and
strategically selective coideal coincide.
