‘A Lazy Fifty’ – Length 05:52

Life was going really well for Ross Davey until one night he put his first fifty into a poker machine.  Within six months he was broke.  This story is vital watching for anyone who likes a punt.

“Another mistaken notion connected with the law of large numbers is the idea that an event is more or less likely to occur because it has or has not happened recently. The idea that the odds of an event with a fixed probability increase or decrease depending on recent occurrences of the event is called the gambler’s fallacy.” 

Leonard Mlodinow – Novelist
