Musgeekan, MI (AP Newsliar) -- In a spectacular bout that went into extra rounds, Akron Ohio resident Herbert Nerdenstein lost his title as the world's Rock, Paper, Scissors (RPS) champion to Gayle McGeeken of Boise, Idaho.
The former champ went down in flames when he chose rock to McGeeken's paper, ending the final round in a competition of over 600 RPS competitors. McGeeken pulled off the surprise upset of veteran Nerdenstein in her debut appearance at the RPS championships, the first time a rookie had taken the title since Dorkmunger toppled Dweebmore in 1959.
Nerdenstein announced that he will not seek a rematch. He intends to semi-retire from the RPS arena to concentrate full-time on training for the Dungeons & Dragons world championships at the Gen-Con Indy tournament this August in Indianapolis.
