|Topological games and Alster spaces|
In this paper we study connections between topological games such as Rothberger, Menger and compact-open, and relate these games to properties involving covers by $G_\delta$ subsets. The results include: (1) If Two has a winning strategy in the Menger game on a regular space $X$, then $X$ is an Alster space. (2) If Two has a winning strategy in the Rothberger game on a topological space $X$, then the $G_\delta$-topology on $X$ is LindelÃ¶f. (3) The Menger game and the compact-open game are (consistently) not dual.

|Productively LindelÃ¶f Spaces May All Be $D$|
We give easy proofs that (a) the Continuum Hypothesis implies that if the product of $X$ with every LindelÃ¶f space is LindelÃ¶f, then $X$ is a $D$-space, and (b) Borel's Conjecture implies every Rothberger space is Hurewicz.
