The purpose of this paper is to solve anm-silent versusn-silent duel with arbitrary accuracy functionsP andQ which are continuously differentiable in [0, 1] with positive derivatives in (0, 1) and such thatP(0)=Q(0)=0,P(1)∈(0, 1),Q(1)∈(0, 1). The game can be interpreted as a game in which the players know only that the numbers of their actions have binomial distribution.
