Thu, 10 Feb 2022 02:08:32 +0000https://blog.tanyakhovanova.com/?p=1583#comment-13383I am wondering the following: Suppose Alice goes broke with a particular sequence a. If there are k heads, then there are k+100 tails. In the switched sequence b, there are k+100 heads and k tails. So sequence b has 100 (rather than 200) more heads than sequence a, and the ratio between probabilities should be (49/51)^100.
