Just wanted to clarify that the playing field (layout of checkers) is randomized for every round. Also, it is my understanding that the each playing field is different.

The field is not guaranteed to be the same from round to round. How much it varies is ultimately going to be based on the preference of the referee. The field may be "randomized" from match to match, or less frequently - you just never know. There are only so many possible configurations for different areas of the board, it's quite possible it could be randomly the same for one team every round they play. Your robot must be able to handle different scenarios.

Only in the sense that each Snickers bar you eat is different. There are tolerances at play here, and it's true that occasionally the rogue peanut makes things "interesting", but overall you should expect every field to be "similar enough." You MAY NOT request tables nor request being moved to a different table - if you're scheduled to play on one table, that is the table you are required to play on; the only exception is if you're scheduled to play on the same side of the same table all 3 matches - you are allowed to kindly request a different field, and the tournament coordinator may or may not be able to move you depending on circumstances.
