Roshambo? We Roshit you not.


UltimateBet has recently made the puzzling choice to put the popular human game of rock-paper-scissors on its poker/blackjack site. There's been some discussion on optimal rock paper scissors play, but simply having a computer generate a random number between 1 and 3, or rolling a regular 6-sided die and using 1-2 = rock, 3-4=scissors, 5-6=paper will eliminate any edge your opponents have over you. Of course UB, should they rake this game, will be getting an edge over every throw.

Players can sit heads up and play match after match of this game which, while there might be some purpose to playing it live, I can see little or no reason to play it online--except perhaps just to say that you did.
