Argentina’s Amazing Journey to the Championships

ArgentinaWe received a great email the other day with a very cool story of how a group of friends all the way from Argentina figured out a way to send someone from the group to the 2008 Yahoo! RPS World Championships.


We are a group of 15 friends that have been gathering for the last 9 yeasrs every Thursday to have dinner after playing a soccer match. After paying dinner we always used to round up the bill and the remaining was given to the winner of a “one on one” lightning RPS tournament. Last year, we heard about the event and what started as a dream is now about to become true. We decided to play a 1 year tournament and the winner would have  the chance to represent us in the RPS 2008 World Championship in Canada. Most of the money came from rounding up the dinner’s bill. After one year of tournaments, Martin “Chingo” Ingolotti was the winner and will be representing our group of friends in Canada.

Now, all we need to know is if 'Chingo" has what it takes to compete at the world class level of RPS when he has the dreams of his friends and the entire country of Argentina.
