watching games during tournaments

I play at clubs and live tournaments. Watching other games is a big part of the entertainment and learning and social aspect.Commenting is banned. Talking to other players here, seem to want to watch also. It would make tournaments more entertaining. What are other tournament players opinion on watching?

I don't think it can happen. It potentially allows for collusion and coaching a player, either in person or online. Nice thought, but doubt GC would ever go for it.

At you can play games of skill only -- play for free or play for $prizes!. According to the statutes of most states in the United States, gambling is defined as: "risking something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance". (Also see No Gambling!).   The skill (as opposed to chance) is predominant in games of skill. Playing games of skill for $prizes, therefore, has nothing to do with gambling as it is not a contest of chance -- the more skillful player will win far more often. The chance element of a 'gamble' is either insignificant or missing. When players compete in tournaments or games of skill for $prizes -- it is "competitive entertainment" rather then "gambling". The more skilled winner will always win more matches, tournaments and $prizes.
