Abstract: 1735, Euler evaluated the special values at positive even integers of Riemann zeta function. He developed the infinite product formula of the sine function and discovered the evaluations of multiple zeta values with arguments 2,2,....2. This also leads to the evaluations of multiple zeta values with arguments m,m,....,m and m > 2.

Here we evaluate multiple zeta-star values with arguments r+2,2,2,....,2 through their integral representations. During the evaluations, we need some particular combinatorial identities which maybe new, but possible old. Anyway, we prove all these combinatorial identities, use them to prove identities among generating functions of multiple zeta values and obtain the evaluations in the final.
