# Check if a strategy is a best response¶

A game can be passed a pair of Strategies to check if they are best responses to each other. Let us create a game to illustrate this:

```
>>> import nashpy as nash
>>> import numpy as np
>>> A = np.array([[3, 0], [5, 1]])
>>> B = np.array([[3, 5], [0, 1]])
>>> prisoners_dilemma = nash.Game(A, B)
```

The `is_best_response`

method returns a pair of booleans. In this
instance, the row player strategy is a best response to the column player’s but
not vice versa:

```
>>> sigma_r = np.array([0, 1])
>>> sigma_c = np.array([1, 0])
>>> prisoners_dilemma.is_best_response(sigma_r, sigma_c)
(True, False)
```
