This one feels less honest than the monty hall problem.Its still a given scenario and a problem for you to think about, sure it leads you a little bit but that's just in the nature of the question and is more a fault of the human mind. Regardless, it shouldn't take too long for you to work out 2/3 or be convinced of it.
The problem itself tells you you picked a yellow ball so you jump into thinking it's a box vs box question, ignoring that initial part.
Meanwhile monty hall can work in real life.
Yeah, monty hall doesn't make your first choice for you, so its more applicable.
