How to Improve Your Odds of Winning Rock-Paper-Scissors

 

While the mathematical odds of rock-paper-scissors is one-in-three, the ACTUAL odds are different because humans are involved – and humans have emotions.Chinese scientists have figured out how to improve your odds of winning rock-paper-scissors.

 

While the mathematical odds of rock-paper-scissors is one-in-three, the ACTUAL odds are different because humans are involved – and humans have emotions.

 

Researchers found that players had a tendency to repeat a wining move.

 

Players also had a tendency to give up on a move if they lost using it more than twice in a row.

 

With that in mind, the way to improve your chances of winning is to throw down a gesture that would either beat the previous winner – or throw down a gesture that would beat one of the other two gestures a prior loser had not just used.

 

Imagine how much better your life would have been if you had known all along how to win rock-paper-scissors.
