Freecell Addiction (Posted on 2008-10-26) Difficulty: 3 of 5
In the computer solitaire game "Freecell", statistics are kept for the largest winning streak, largest losing streak, and the percentage of games won.

Being mildly addicted to the game, I was not suprised to see that I had won 60 consecutive games while only losing 3 consecutive games.

Two questions based on this information:

1) What is my expected percentage of games won?

2) How many more games will I have to play before I have an even chance of a winning streak of 100 games?
