Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can still ruin a great poker game.
We, as a league, cannot tolerate behavior at our games that would discourage other players from coming back, or cause our wonderful volunteer tournament directors any unnecessary stress or grief.
We are all adults. We are family. Let’s do our best to respect each other and show kindness to one another.
If something is going on at home or work that is so difficult or stressful that you can’t come to our games and act appropriately, we are very sorry to hear that. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help. But also, please stay home until things are resolved enough that we can have a pleasant, composed version of you at our tables.
It is a little sad that we need to have this rule, and sadder still that we need to post a reminder about it.
