Didn't know of a better place to put this. But it's kind of similar to my old May Bulk RPS Contest, so I could have bumped one of those.

538 Riddler RPS contest:
Riddler Classic

As suggested by Ian Horn: What time is it?! Game time! As in, time for the inaugural Riddler Rock-Paper-Scissors Tournament!

You know how the game works: Rock beats scissors, scissors beats paper, paper beats rock.

To enter this battle royale, submit the following two things via the button below: 1) The probabilities that you will play rock, paper and scissors on the initial throw of a match, and 2) the conditional probabilities that you will play rock, paper and scissors after you observe your opponent play either rock, paper or scissors.x

One strategy submission per person, please.

I’ll match each of your submissions against every other submission in a series of best-two-out-of-three rock-paper-scissors matches. Whoever wins the most matches will be crowned Rochambeau Raja of Riddler Nation — and there may be a little prize, too.

May the best hand win!
