In order to elude Zaroff and his henchman, Ivan, Rainsford used several tricks.  The first trick he used was to create a trail that would be difficult to follow; the trail looped and doubled back on itself.  Rainsford also slept and hid from Zaroff in a large tree.  In addition, Rainsford built a trap from a dead tree (Ivan was injured), dug another trap in the swamp, created a third trap by tying his knife to a sapling, jumped into the ocean, and returned to Zaroff's home to wait for him.Rainsford played Zaroff's game intelligently and ultimately won.
