Boffins trapped antiprotons for days, still can't say why they survived the Big Bang

Who says particles and antiparticles were created in EXACTLY equal numbers?

When the early post big bang universe cooled enough for protons and antiprotons to form, maybe there was an equal chance of each, but that doesn't mean it would be a 50/50 split down to the last decimal point. One flavor would be more numerous than the other, and even if most annihilated each other one or the other would have a surplus at the end of it all.
