Gambler's Fallacy

Gambler's Anonymous

The Gambler's Fallacy is the mistaken notion that repetition changes the odds. If you flip a coin five times, always getting tails, there's still a 50-50 chance that you'll get tails on your next flip. You can't say&md; "Tails has come up five times in a row, so now it's &ls;time' that heads comes up."
