In Stastitical Probabilities, the outcome is intepreted as a fundamental 'Law like' process.
Is this based on observer dependance?
P.S How accurate is a Guess?

Second, I have no idea where you got the idea that, in any kind of probability, "the outcome is intepreted as a fundamental 'Law like' process. "
For one thing, there are usually many "outcomes" not "the outcome". Also, in mathematical probablility, we are typically "given" the underlying probability distribution but I would not call that 'Law like'.
If that is what you are talking about, then, no, it is not "observer dependent". Of course, when you are applying a mathematical model to a statistical problem, you might approximate the given distribution by one based on observation.
Finally, it's impossible to say how "accurate" a "guess" is.
