OK, this is the final answer (and correct one)
(A) means that you choose door A

B* means the prise in behind door B

suppose you choose door A:
1. (A) B* C
2. (A) B C*
3. (A*) B C

this means:
there are 3 possible ways of the game to continue -
the prize is behind A,B or C.
this diagram shows the possible situations (revealed to all). then the host takes away a door:

1. (A) B*
2. (A) C*
3. (A*) B OR C...

Now, choosing A and choosing to STAY with door A will get you the prize 1/3 of the time!!!
Switching will get you a prize 2/3 of the time!!!

THAT IS IT!!! *i'm outta here*

Meep Meep...
