The Fallacy of Restricted Choice
John,did you ever have a stiff K and a stiff Q in the same suit? I do not believe it is possible. Am I wrong?
The Fallacy of Restricted Choice
Peter, you said 2000 deals! I am afraid you forgot the 500 deals where East won the first finesse with the Q. (Please do not ask for a redeal on them! Just kidding!) The crux of the matter is that East holds KQ 1000 times and the second finesse loses ...
The Fallacy of Restricted Choice
Peter, tell me what you think is wrong with the following. When East holds both K and Q and wins the first finesse with the K, the second finesse loses. When East holds both K and Q and wins the first finesse with the Q, the second finesse loses. East ...

The Fallacy of Restricted Choice

The Fallacy of Restricted Choice
Thank you Josh. Sanity at last.
The Fallacy of Restricted Choice
Paul,I think the way ahead is for you to propose the terms. Please be precise on the conduct of the deal. I suggested that we keep dealing until one of us has had enough. You might like propose another way conclude the exercise. Finally you should propose the stakes ...
The Fallacy of Restricted Choice
Roland, what on earth do you mean? We shuffle, deal the 22 cards and accept the result. Then we shuffle again, deal and get another result which we also accept, and so on and so on.
