Abstract: It is shown that a separately continuous function $ f:X \times Y \to Z$ from the product of a certain type of Hausdorff space $ X$ and a compact Hausdorff space $ Y$ into a metrizable space $ Z$ is jointly continuous on a set of the type $ A \times Y$, where $ A$ is a dense $ {G_\delta }$ set in $ X$. The class of Hausdorff spaces $ X$ in question is defined by a gametheoretic condition. The result improves (and simplifies the proof of) a recent result of Namioka. Many "deep" theorems in functional analysis and automatic continuity theory are easy corollaries.
