One of my favourite problems, because it just seems sooooo counter-intuitive. However, as I found out, it seems much more obvious to me if you consider it with 100 doors:

Pick 1 door of a hundred. What are the chances you're right? very low.

Now 98 doors are opened, and you're given the chance to switch to the other one. Now it suddenly seems very clear that you should switch.
