You Are Ultimate Winner: Rock Paper Scissors Tournament In Las Vegas Will Determine World's Champ

Rock paper scissors. A random game featuring no skill whatsoever.

And the world's non-greats at this non-game will come to Vegas to pit their non-skills against each other.

It's like Highlander for the singlularly unambitious.

Ever since he was crowned regional champion, Matt Corron has been stopped on sidewalks and in bars by folks who want a crack at beating him. Last week, a stranger had to pay for Corron's breakfast after challenging him -- and losing -- at the Boulevard Diner in Worcester.

Corron rarely loses at Rock, Paper, Scissors, and for his talent he's on his way to Las Vegas this weekend for a shot at $50,000 and a national title.

...

The two-day 2007 USA Rock Paper Scissors Tournament Finals will bring together more than 300 regional finalists from across the nation...

A lifelong devotee who discovered that there was a professional Canadian league, Leshem decided to start one here. He's written a set of rules, trained referees, and has unsuccessfully petitioned the International Olympic Committee to make it one of their events. At this weekend's event at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, a paramedic will be on standby because wrist and shoulder injuries often occur, Leshem said. ESPN is expected to air footage of the competition this summer.

A bit of strategy: The "masters" of the "sport" say don't throw rock first, as that's the most common first "move."
