Abstract

We show that if X is a first-countable Urysohn space where player II has a winning strategy in the game G{ω_1}_1(O,O_D) (the weak Lindelöf game of length ω1) then X has cardinality at most continuum. This may be considered a partial answer to an old question of Bell, Ginsburg and Woods. It is also the best result of this kind since there are Hausdorff first-countable spaces of arbitrarily large cardinality where player II has a winning strategy even in the weak Lindelöf game of countable length. We also tackle the problem of finding a bound on the cardinality of a first-countable space where player II has a winning strategy in the game G^{ω_1}_{fin}(O,O_D), providing some partial answers to it. We finish by constructing an example of a compact space where player II does not have a winning strategy in the weak Lindelöf game of length ω_1.
