Hoping to improve my game by osmosis and sporadic uncoordinated efforts. So far, it's a slow process.

What are your pet peeves?
Having pondered this for several years, I think (like Tom) that it's righthandedness at work here in the USA. As a follow-on pet peeve, people who sit West but won't okay the score, then expect me to remember. I find this a small but real mental burden.
What are your pet peeves?
People who take up more than their corner of the table, either by taking two corners or by putting their stuff away from the edges. People who leave their trash behind them. People who aren't willing to okay the score but always sit West.

Ditto to the above comments. Thanks!
Guidelines for BBO Vugraph Commentators
FWIW, I almost always stay with one table. I might flip briefly to the other table of the same match, but I come back within a minute or so. IMO, commentary is NOT a waste of time. I really appreciate and enjoy it. Thank you and all of the other ...
The ACBL: a Byword for Incompetence?
Of course it's not a free lunch -- the costs are just covered elsewhere, and the players are paying for it, whether they eat the lunch or not. Makes me think of the airlines, where they're now charging for every little thing. I actually like this -- if I don ...
The ACBL: a Byword for Incompetence?
Not my personal experience, but what I've been told several times: Sectionals: Board members have gone out to alert local restaurants to expect a lot of people at unusual times. They've never gotten any response from the restaurants, who continue to be overwhelmed at the unusual meal times ...
