Chapter 2:
During a game show, a player is presented three boxes. One of them contains 10000 dollars, and only the presenter knows which one. The player picks one box, but before he can open it, the presenter stops him, and opens one of the other 2 boxes, an empty one (the game is always like this). Then, the player can choose either to maintain his choice, or to open the remaining box. Is one of the options better than the other?
