Default Re: creating a 2:1 shot with a fair coin

In the monty hall problem, monty *must* show you the wrong door when one of the doors you didn't pick is wrong and the other is right, so your chances improve from 1/3 to 2/3 by switching. That is what I am trying to avoid here by making a random selection of which coin to show.
