Verify the Nash equilibria of this game, suppose that Ingrid and Jeff do not randomize over actions.

Strategies in which a player makes a specific choice or takes a specific action will not always result in a Nash equilibrium. In some cases, players can make a random choice among two or more possible actions, based on a set of chosen probabilities.  A strategy like this is called a mixed strategy.
