Online Puzzle Championship

Introduction

Suppose you're on a game show and you're given a choice of three doors. Behind one door, is a car; behind the others, goats. These are placed randomly behind the doors. The rules of the game show are as follows: After you have chosen a door, the door remains closed for the time being. The game show host who knows what is behind the doors now opens one of the two remaining doors which has a goat behind it. If both remaining doors have goats behind them, he chooses one randomly.He will ask you to decide whether you want to stay with your first choice or switch to the last remaining door. What would you do if you want to maximize your chances of winning the car?
This is a famous conundrum that has puzzled all kinds of people and created a lot of controversies in its days. Just think again....It's not obvious.
