In the tournaments is there a standard for claiming timeouts? Do we
just claim the win when the flag comes up or do we give a grace
period? I would think it best if there was as least an understanding
among the players of how this should be handled. Just wondering.
This is a good point. Personally I think that in the tournaments a TO
loss should be automatic. I intend to claim timeouts should they
occur (under the assumption that my opponents will do the same).
It's nice in many ways to have TO be optional, but I don't think that
should apply in tournaments-- we're all competing against each other,
so the field should be level for all, not dependent on the TO
forgiveness of our respective opponents.
It was for the reason that Jake gave why I took a timeout over
NoGoodAmI. No enjoyment is gained from doing so but I agree, there
needs to be a level playing field so that things like pleyers' friendship
or occasions when one is more willing to claim timeout against some
and wouldn't against others don't skew the tournament.
Still, it's not a pleasurable thing to do.

PS: No, I'm not sure what "skew the tournament" means either...but
you get the idea(!)
I go along with this. I will be friendly in non-tournament games. I
touranment games I will take every points I can.
