PFD coach, 5 yrs.

Preferences:

Weigh well and give me effective and concrete impact calculus. Ultimately I like a good clear collapse in the FF. Don't try to go for everything.

I can appreciate passion and humor, but please do not be rude. This will result in lower speaker points.

Second rebuttal should of course respond to first rebuttal.

Evidence does not argue for itself. This is true in case and throughout the round. Citing a card in rebuttal without explaining the link, or however you use using it for a refutation, is not adequate. Memorizing cards is not true argumentation.

I really appreciate well organized speeches.

Now that we've got longer summaries, be sure yours does good offense and defense. You have time. Summary should not be a second rebuttal though...if you don't give me offense there, I can't carry any more for you throughout the round.

Good luck!
