You may not know it, but every time you step up to a buffet you have entered a competition. It’s not just man vs. food, but human pitted against human in a fierce competition for a scoop of scrambled, a helping of ham and of course, for the last egg roll. It’s a dining experience that only the fittest, the hungriest, and the savviest can survive.

Since casino diners, brunch guests and wedding attendees may not have realized that a buffet is a sport, it’s likely they will arrive unprepared for the fierce showdown that’s about to take place. Luckily, there’s a new video from a buffet master that can show hungry diners how the sport is played—and won.

Watch now and may the odds be ever in your favor.
