Author's comments and explanations:
Here's another Monopoly game. Unfortunately for acmlm, I won 93 frames over him and the game ;).

My new strategy consists of:

  h = human
  c = computer
h = 5 + 5 h = 4 + 4 (Buy Tennessee Avenue. -$180) h = 1 + 3 (Advance to GO card. +$200) c = 4 + 6 h = 5 + 5 h = 3 + 3 (Buy St-James Place. -$180) h = 1 + 2 (Buy New York Avenue. -$200) Build 11 houses on New York Avenue. c = 3 + 3 c = 4 + 4 (-$750) c = 2 + 2 (Go back 3 spaces card) c = Bankrupt
I didn't like the idea to let computer buy Oriental Avenue so instead, it moves to "Just visiting jail".
My original strategy was to:
  h = 5 + 5
  h = 4 + 4 (Buy Tennessee Avenue. -$180)
  h = 1 + 3 (Advance to GO card. +$200)
  c = 4 + 6
  h = 5 + 5
  h = 3 + 3 (Buy St-James Place. -$180)
  h = 1 + 2 (Buy New York Avenue. -$200)
  h = Build 11 houses from St-James Place.
  c = 3 + 3 (-$750)
  c = 1 + 2 (-$800)
  c = Bankrupt
It would have been faster in real time but wasn't able to get it.

Btw, this is acmlm'c strategy:

  h = 5 + 5
  h = 4 + 4 (Buy Tenessee Avenue. -$180)
  h = 1 + 3 (Advance to GO card. +$200)
  c = 1 + 6 (Buy Oriental Avenue. -$100)
  h = 5 + 5
  h = 3 + 3 (Buy St-James Place. -$180)
  h = 1 + 2 (Buy New York Avenue. -$200)
  h = Build 11 houses on New York Avenue.
  c = 6 + 6 (-$750)
  c = 3 + 1 (Go back 3 spaces card.)
  c = Bankrupt on New York Avenue.
