First, I was gone for 5 days to Singapore, then was securing boats and battening down for typhoon Bopha (I have now been thru the eye of 4 hurricanes and 1 typhoon! Figure the odds on that!), so am only now getting back to this thread.

I concede that I am wrong if EVERY TIME you play you are given a second chance. If, however, it is random, or at the whim of Monty Hall, then I would say perhaps.... For me, it took viewing the problem to understand (I learn best visually).

Of course, I ran the simulator a half dozen times and LOST EVERY TIME. I have the same ability to bend statistics at black jack as well.

Cheers,

Doug
