I agree - no advantage to switching. I think this is a variation of the Monty Hall problem - where you have three choices to make, but after you choose he opens one of the remaining curtains to show the prize and asks if you want to switch - which you always should to better your odds from 1/3 to 1/2. In this case there are only two options and no new information - why change!
