HELP! I can’t find an column Cece wrote and I’m getting blasted by my unfaithful friends. Can anybody tell me where I can find the column?
A while back The Great One had a column that dealt with the probability in games like 3 card monty (and that insipid game show with Monty Hall). In it, he clarified that your odds of picking the correct card on the first try were, of course 1/3. However, when given the option of picking a second time, your odds were not 1/2 but actually 2/3. This caused quite a bit of consternation in subsequent columns. Cece was eventually, of course, proven correct.
Go in peace. Come back in pieces.
