Abstract: Principles of chance deference face two kinds of problems. In the first place, they face difficulties with a priori knowable contingencies. In the second place, they face difficulties in cases where you’ve lost track of the time. I provide a revised principle of chance deference which handles these problem cases. The generalisation has a surprising consequence for Adam Elga’s Sleeping Beauty puzzle.
