Interesting, thanks wracket. But even though each flip is independent, can't you look at odds over a longer span? Let's say you did 100 flips. The first 4 were even. You've already "beaten" the odds. But I thought maybe the odds would get greater as time went on, that it would indeed get close to 50 odd and 50 even. I'm thinking there might be some magic number that would bring the odds back to 50/50?


Scratch that last bit, magic number that would make the results split evenly, is what I meant

Indeed, the more flips you do after point 4 in this scenario the closer your expected distribution gets to 50/50...but without ever reaching it.
