May I add a coach type to point 7 (and my personal favorite):
The Religious Zealot:
:All praise to Nuffle, in his glorious fickleness.
May He smile on your block dice, and may He bless your injury rolls with the sound of snapping bones.
May your 1's be plentiful when He decideth.
And may your 6's be as useful as a chocolate teapot.
All in His favor
All for his enjoyment and gracious chaos
We are but pawns (or perhaps prawns) in his salad of anarchy
Embrace the bedlam, for it is His way.
Rejoice in the turmoil, for it is His way.
We are all equal in His madhouse of fun.

Antics type g.
The Musician: Pulls out a very VERY small violin and plays for your bad dice.

The only time I've been to a tournament, I'm pretty sure the apologizer did what he says on the tin, no prompting

I have only participated in GW Game Days and Grand Tournaments.. that being said the player "types" you listed can be found in all games not just BB, lol, here are a few additions...
1. The Rules Lawyer :do I need to explain? DON'T BE ONE
2. The Superstitious or slow dice roller : I personaly don't care if each person uses thier own dice, but be wary, that said if you feel you need to use the same dice, ask a judge to enforce it... and that said..
3. The judge's " teacher's pet " : DON'T BE ONE / this person trys to curry favor or familiarity with the judges by talking to them, making jokes, going with them to lunch so when the player has a rules concern he thinks the judges will grant him slack because of his special status...ugh I hate these guys...
ok enough from me, one last thing most important! ::
HAVE FUN, ENJOY THE MOMENT THEY DON'T COME OFTEN ENOUGH, BASK IN THE AWSOME ATMOSPHERE AND AFTER THE ROUNDS DON'T FORGET THE BEERS AT THE HOTEL BAR / PUB

Great post thanks. The advice will ome in handy for me when I play my first tournament. Last time I played TT was 20 years ago.

Super post - great tips.
One question - how long do you cook your dice for and at what temperature? And do you do it with the sixes on the top so the light bits float up? Or the ones on the top to bake them heavier? (This does help to explain your great tournament success rate...!)

Good job! The main thing is just being pleasant/nice to opponent. Trying hard but don't stress too much. Yeah you can mention bad rolls, but better not go on about it. At a one-off 5/6 game tournament a couple of unlucky games won't be a shock. And yes the tournament winner will be bound to have had decent luck, but likely also played very well.
I found the trickiest thing at first is remembering to turn models after using them to indicate using them consistently.

Necro comment, but wanted to say useful blog, stumbled across it ahead of my first TT Tourney this coming Saturday.
