Write down the payoff matrix, Applied Statistics

Two individuals, player 1 and player 2, are  competing in an auction to obtain a valuable object. Each player bids in a sealed envelope, without knowing the bid of the other player. The bids must be in multiples of $100 and the maximum that they can bid is $500. The object is worth $400 to player 1 and $300 to Player 2. The highest bidder wins the object. In case of a tie, Player 1 gets the object. The auction is a First Price Auction, i.e., the winner of the object pays whatever price p she bid. So, if the value of the object for a player is x and the player wins, her payoff is x - p. If she loses, her payoff is zero.
