Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Loser66, you are thinking cards. Hearts, Clubs, Diamonds, and the power suit the Spades. In coins it is is just Heads and Tails. So half heads, half tails, by basic probability. In real life, we see it is much more complex. For example, how Derren Brown tossed a coin with the prediction that he would get ten heads in a row and did so.
