Abstract: On a filtered probability space $ (\Omega ,\mathcal {F},P,\mathbb{F}=(\mathcal {F}_t)_{0\leq t\leq T})$, we consider stopper-stopper games $ \overline C:=\inf _{\boldsymbol {\rho }}\sup _{\tau \in \mathcal {T}} \mathbb{E}[U(\boldsymbol {\rho }(\tau ),\tau )]$ and $ \underline C:=$
$ \sup _{\boldsymbol {\tau }} \inf _{\rho \in \mathcal {T}}\mathbb{E}[U(\rho ,\boldsymbol {\tau } (\rho ))]$ in continuous time, where $ U(s,t)$ is $ \mathcal {F}_{s\vee t}$-measurable (this is the new feature of our stopping game), $ \mathcal {T}$ is the set of stopping times, and $ \boldsymbol {\rho },\boldsymbol {\tau }:\mathcal {T} \mapsto \mathcal {T}$ satisfy certain non-anticipativity conditions. We show that $ \overline C=\underline C$, by converting these problems into a corresponding Dynkin game.
