In OTB chess i believe Black has choice which side the clock goes on
Usually black gets choice, but there are some tournaments where the TD's want every clock facing the same way (I think so they can see them). Black also usually gets to choose which clock and chess set to use.
Over the board
Beware! Low stats does not equal lack of ability!
