The last section of “Lecture at Zilsel’s” [9, §4] contains an interesting but quite condensed discussion of Gentzen’s ﬁrst version of his consistency proof for P A , reformulating it as what has come to be called the no-counterexample interpretation. I will describe Gentzen’s result (in game-theoretic terms), ﬁll in the details (with some corrections) of Godel's reformulation, and discuss the relation between the two proofs.
