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)
