Poker Quiz Question #13

Q#13: You and a friend are flipping a coin. It comes up heads 4 times in a row. You flip it again. Neither one of you is cheating and the coin is fair. If you were to gamble on the outcome of the 5th flip, what would you do?

  1. Bet on tails
  2. It doesn't matter, it's still 50/50
  3. Bet on heads


A#13: Seriously, if you chose anything other than "It doesn't matter, it's still 50/50" you need to go back to elementary school--and this time pay attention. Of course, if the question didn't state "Neither of you is cheating and the coin is fair," we might be having a different discussion here. But it's a fair toss and coin. Past coin flips have nothing to do with future ones. There is an equal (i.e., 50:50) chance the coin will come up heads or tails.

All-in for now...
