Although I follow the explanation as to why the door carries a 2/3
chance of being the correct door, my logic (warped as it is) suggests
that as soon as one of the three doors is opened,it is eliminated from
the problem. Therefore probabilities for each of the remaining doors
must then be "reset" (i.e. this is a new mathematical problem,
independent of the previous conditions and hence probabilities), hence
I share Ben's difficulties with this idea! DUH?! (Laura, confused)
