My odds of choosing the color with higher distribution, along with my odds of pulling that color out of the box, exactly balance my odds of choosing the lower color and pulling that out of the box.

Incomplete statement. Let me try again:

My odds of guessing the higher color and pulling it out of the box plus my odds of guessing the lower color and pulling it out of the box, exactly balance my odds of guessing the higher color and pulling the low one plus my odds of guessing the low one and pulling the high one.

Conclusion: Never go in against a NajdorfSicilian when $10k is on the line.
