Background. Going to the TX State Championship I took with me player B & player M followed in his vehicle. Both of these players are over 30. Sometimes in the stress of battles sometimes we forget to do some things. I had finished my match after about 5 minutes and was watching player B play against player M. I knew this was going to be a tough match as it was Blaziken vs. Swampert/EX, plus these are 2 friends of mine. While checking the status of the game I couldn't find player B's prize count. I asked one of the judges to inquire about the layout of prizes. Player B the realized he hadn't layed them out and was assigned a penalty of prize swap. This was in a single game tournament. I found out about the prize swap after the game was over and was stunned. It ended up costing player B the game because player M plays very slow. In fact he had a 7 minute turn at one point. Anyway when time was called player M won on prize count. I told player B I felt the prize swap penalty wasn't justified & also that he should've called a jusge over to observe player M taking so long in his turn. On the way home when we stopped for a bite to eat, player M admitted then that he knows he plays slowly & is sometimes lost in thinking of something else instead of his cards & he feels that his opponents probably think that he's really deciding what to do & deep in thought while actually his mind isn't on the game & is befuddled at his options. What would you rule on 1) Forgetting to lay the prizes. Is the prize swap penalty appropraite? 2) Player M always taking so long in his turn, especialy when he has very few options? And how would you rule?
