A saloon gambler produces three cards and challenges the other customers to a wager. The first card is red on both sides, the second is red on one side and white on the other and the third is white on both sides. He places a card on the table with the red side showing and says, "This can't be the white/white card so the other side must be red or white. That makes it an even money bet. I'll bet $10 against your $10 on the color of the other side." What are the true odds of the gambler winning?
