Probability is only absolute when an infinite amount of trials are run.

The first player has a 33.3% chance of getting a brass coin, but the second player has either a 50% or a 0% chance, depending on the outcome of the first pick. By allowing player A to change his choice, it doesn't really change the outcome.
Can you provide a video demonstration of the game, because I'm not sure that I understand the mechanism? How is there a brass coin selected in 100% of the rounds? It would seem that both players would end up with a zinc coin some of the time.

Could it have something to do with the methods/orders in which during the trials the dealer placed the coins in?
