If you give me $10, I give you three cards (from an ordinary playing deck).  I then deal me 1 card.  You get to look at your hand and then must claim whether my card is lesser in value than your cards, greater in value of your cards, or between your least & greatest valued cards.  If you guess correctly you will receive $20 (your 10 plus my 10), otherwise i keep your $10.  Then we play again (if you like).

 

Who is advantaged in this game?

Shouldn't your average intervals be of a size more like 16 1/3?

Sure ... if you deal me only TWO cards.

But you deal me THREE cards.
