WIN: The American Sign Language (ASL) sign for "win"
Also can mean things such as: succeed, victory, or accomplishment.
The sign for "WIN" is produced by non-dominant hand in the "S" handshape being stationary in front of the body. While the dominant hand starts as a loose "5-claw" handshape and changes into the "S" handshape while sweeping inward toward the body and then upwards above the non-dominant hand. Memory aid: Imagine you are holding something in your non-dominant hand, then your dominant hand grabs the object and pulls it slightly upward.
There is another version of "WIN" with the dominant hand in an "X" handshape:
Sample sentence: If we play chess who do you think will win?
