You know the Monty Hall problem, now consider
the Random Monty Hall problem: as before, you
face 3 doors, hiding a car, and 2 pigs. You
choose door #1. This time, a wind gust blows
through the studio, opening door #2, revealing
a pig. Do you switch to #3?

This problem is more confusing than the original,
though probably not for this group. And, there's
another possibility - it may be defective, ill
posed, as stated.
