STARCRAFT build order applied with game theory

I don't know if the rest of you are fans of the game (if you live in Chapin or Slivka, you've definitely heard of it) but Starcraft: Brood War may be the most competitive and fast paced strategy game since Chess. If you don't believe me, ask anyone who has ever been to South Korea. Its the rock paper scissors of the twenty first century, and involves so much thought that the university of Michigan is using it as examples to teach game theory(I've posted the link to the lecture notes), and UC Berkeley teaches a class on applying the game directly to economics.

Use these links for review of principles involved, or it could help your gameplay strategy (won't help you APM tho).

the lecture notes from the class:
