 Monty Hall problem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The problem as generally intended also assumes that the particular door the host opens conveys no special information about whether the player's initial choice is correct.
The answer to the problem is that the contestant should choose to switch to the remaining door.
This problem is very similar to the television show Deal or No Deal, which begins with 26 boxes (typically — it depends on the version of the show).

 Monty hall problem   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
I have decided to talk about the Monty Hall problem to see why the answer is the way it is. Hopefully these perspectives on the problem will allow you to find the solution more believable.
I first ran into this problem many years ago and I've found it to be an excellent question you can share with math and non-math students alike.
The wording of this problem is extremely important and there is a slightly different version of this problem that may cause some confusion.

 Let's Make a Deal! | MetaFilter
The problem with the problem is the assumption that you're faced with the initial choice all over again.
Now, Monty will look at the rest of the deck and flip over 50 cards that are not the ace and leave one face down that may or may not be the ace.
Just know that because Monty is constrained by your choice and the rules of the game, that of the two doors left unopened (your choice and one other), the other door has twice the likliehood of hiding the prize than your choice.

Most gunsmiths, especially the good ones I have met are very biased against paintball for several reasons and these are the people with the knowledge and skills to build these advanced type guns.
It's not the guns the "Real Steel" gunsmiths have the problem with, its the UGLY, melted looking, fl plastic magazine or "Hopper" as it is sometimes called on top of the gun.
Look at ads for paintball guns on the web and you will notice +95% of them do NOT have magazines attached and it is for this reason, UGLY and they break up the lines of the gun.

 Programmer Math Skills
The point here is that the Monty Hall problem is trivially solvable with elementary probability theory (as is the birthday problem), the sort of introductory mathematics I believe most coders should be comfortable with.
Without that bit of information, you're left to assume that Monty doesn't know any better than you do, and picking the empty box instead of the one with the prize in it was a result of luck, i.e., not a condition of the puzzle.
The problem is not trivial, because it is psychologically difficult.

Anyway, the 'new' twist rich lather and I created for this Hell, was Choose Your Fate, which enabled audience members to somewhat control the ride into the abyss...
This problem also had caused us to not show ReDeath (yeah that got us quite the reception :P) when I randomly discovered that the audio popped back to life by taking *OUT* one of the audio cables (the right one I think :P).
Monty Hall-style, Rich would take the mic out into the audience and selected audience members to pick the # they wanted to see.

 Amazon.com: Monty Python's Flying Circus, Disc 3: DVD: Monty Python   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
The first season of Monty Python's Flying Circus was a time of experimentation: how to transition from one skit to another, how to weave a gag through a show, and most importantly how to sustain the comic momentum of a sketch.
The sketches are priceless, but Monty Python does their best stuff when they perform live and only do their most popular sketches.
They have implied that the Royal Navy is an 'aven for cannibalism, when it well known we have the problem relatively undr control, and that it is know the RAF which suffers the most casualties in that regard.
