He can average over whatever the heck he wants to average over.
He can take the longest initial match over all flippers and average that over however many times he wants to do the whole experiment over.
If he does that, he'll get something around 20 flips.
Or he can take the the initial match and average that over the million flippers.
If he does that, he'll get something around 1 flip.

No _YOU_ are averaging over a million things. He's averaging over something else. Que sera sera.
