in the last few nights I noticed that some of the games were going on and the players weren't given the option in the game of 'cutting the deck'. I was getting crushed in one game (absolutely terrible starting hands, no chance of moon or ducking) which isn't really surprising since i'm really just getting started to this format, but then noticed that when I wanted to 'change the luck' so to speak, there was no cut option. it happened last night as well, that there wasn't a cut allowed.
looking through some replays (I have game version 1), I saw that certain players very often forget to turn on the 'cut optional' when they are the GL. I know that things move quickly and sometimes people forget, but it is one of the things that is part of the tourney rules. once a game starts and you notice it, you can't change it
i respect all of the hosts, and this isn't a crab against anyone, just hoping that there would be a reminder to check and let a gl know if the options like that one aren't right. the other night my computer froze right before 9pm and after rebooting and then having to reset my modem twice before it would let me connect back to the lobby, i didn't have a chance to look and see if the options were set right, though I was impressed that the host had allowed to set up a game for me if/when I returned; only thing was that was the game i got crushed lol . I think the hosts do a great job considering 'it all' that goes on every night.
so, thanks for all you do
oh, and I have noticed through watching replays that there are certain players who have certain 'habits'; hopefully i'll learn enough about playing so that I can take advantage of that!
