The game rules are: bet an amount, flip a fair coin, if heads I win the bet and get the amount, if tails I lose the bet and pay the amount. I quit after getting my first head. If I lose, I double the bet and play again. What are my expected earnings (start with a $1 bet)?
I visualized a few rounds and saw that I can play until I get net \$1 back. So I always can regain my losses. So I think expected earnings is $1$? I'm not sure how to justify this answer.
