I've played in 5 weekend tournaments. Friendly atmosphere, all around. No serious complaints. A few things:
1. I've seen short-stacked players holding their chips in their hands, on two occasions. .
2. All in bets: on one occasion, I was in the 10 seat, the one seat went all in. An all in chip was placed near the player, which I didn't see. Nor did I hear anything from the dealer. I put a $5,000 chip over the bet line and said 'call,' thinking I was calling an unraised pot. I'd like to see a huge red chip with blinking lights on it (not really) placed in the pot.
