## Main Question or Discussion Point

Let's consider a simple roulette game, where one may either get red or black. Since the probabiblity P of an event A, P(A) is defined as the relative frequency at which the event occurs, if we get red , say 3 times in a row, it is very likely that the next random pick will be black.

My question is, does this mean that the probability of Black increases as more reds occur? consider a person that only joins the roulette game when several reds have occured before he joins and bets on black, will he never have a high probability of winning?
