Rock/paper/scissors design

Hi, do you know the game called rock, paper, scissors? Two players playing it against each other. There are several rounds until one player got 3 wins.

Shall I create one table containing the choices for each round?
Columns: id, player1, choice1, player2, choice2

Or is it better to normalize more and split it into severeal tables:
Table: rounds, Column id
Table: choices, Columns: round_id, player_id, choice

From your experience, which way is better?

Rds, janosh
