%N Numerator of expected payoff in the "Guessing Card Colors" game with a 2ncard deck, using an optimal strategy.
%C A 2ncard playing deck is shuffled and then revealed onebyone to a player who guesses the color (red or black) of each card prior to its being revealed. The player earns one dollar for each card whose color he guesses correctly; there is no penalty for being wrong.
