Pure strategy in Game Theory


One of the very basic questions I have in Game Theory is about Pure strategy.
Based on the reading as I understand it, "Pure Strategy is the only strategy for the player which is also the winning strategy." Am I correct about this understanding?

On the other hand, Mixed strategy is availability of several strategies the player could use against the opponents? Am I correct about this?

Thank you in advance.

Do you have a reference for this?

The way I understand it, is that a mixed strategy is random, nondeterministic and makes use of probabilities. A pure strategy is deterministic. Maybe there are other definitions?
