Rock Paper Scissors Champion Hustling Unsuspecting Brooklynites Out of Beer Money

If a random thirtysomething dude in a hoodie sidles up to you at Union Pool and asks you to play Rock Paper Scissors, what the hell are you doing at Union Pool anyway?

Thirty-two-year-old IT guy Brian Bennett once placed second at the 2006 World Rock Paper Scissors Championships. Now he spends his time trying to hustle unsuspecting Brooklynites out of beer money by challenging them to drunken rounds of the game. Gothamist says it took Bennett a little over 30 minutes to nab $10 from “rich, playful, adventurous or stupid” opponents.

File this under just another reason not to go to bars in Williamsburg.
