ETIQUETTE TIPS: In AC when games are doubled banked and players in different games get in each other’s way :
The play is normally given to
- the player making a break;
- The player who can move out of the way the quickest;
- The player whose time is almost up has precedence. Once the time has finished the other game whose clock is still running, has precedence.
