Monty Hall Game Or the 3-door “paradox” In 1980’s there was a game show run by a host called Monty Hall. In the game three doors, one of which opened to a prize, say a car, and the other two nothing. The contestant first would choose one of the doors. Monty would no door just yet. Instead he would open one of the other doors that did not have the and would offer the contestant to change his or her choice. For instance if the chooses door number one, and the car is actually behind door number two, th would open door number three, and offer the contestant to switch his or her cho case switching would be good (but the contestant would not know this yet.) The question is what strategy is best: Should the contestant take up Monty’s change his/her choice, should he or she stick with the original choice, or it real matter, either way the chance of winning the car is the same? This problem can be solved analytically, but let’s try to use YASAI to get an an simulate this game with the three strategies: Stick with the original choice, s choice, randomly decide whether to switch or stick with the original choice.
