Logical Fallacies / Gambler\'s Fallacy

Gambler's Fallacy

The gambler's fallacy is based on the false belief that separate, independent events can affect the likelihood of another random event, or that if something happens often that it is less likely that the same will take place in the future.

Example of Gambler's Fallacy

Edna had rolled a 6 with the dice the last 9 consecutive times. Surely it would be highly unlikely that she would roll another 6 on the 10th time.
