I'm going through the examples at learntla.com and one asks to write an operator that finds the maximum value in a set. I did it using the SetReduce operator from somewhere else in the tutorial, but the given answer is simpler:

Max(S) == CHOOSE x \in S : \A y \in S : y <= x

I can't quite "read" this. Since CHOOSE picks any value from the set where the condition is true, it seems like this would return a value from S that is larger than at least one other value, not larger than all other values. What makes it keep going to find the largest value?
