This dissertation consists of three essays in the field of Microeconomic Theory. In each chapter, I use a game-theoretic model to study strategic behavior in a complex economic situation. In each of these situations, there is a conflict of interest between the agents and their actions are interdependent. The theoretical findings in Chapters 2 and 4 are supported by empirical analyses based on observational data and a laboratory experiment. In Chapter 2, I examine the role of game preparation and experience in games commonly played by professional players, in which the opponent's prior behavior is observable. Chapter 3 deals with the strategic behavior of firms who make job offers to previously interviewed workers in the labor market. Chapter 4 analyzes a repeated adviser-consumer relationship in which the adviser can receive a bonus if the consumer takes certain actions.
