Theory: I ran a lot of theory as a debater, I'll probably be pretty good at adjudicating a theory debate. I default competing interps, drop the debater, and no RVI's.

K's: I ran a lot of K's as a debater, I'll probably be decent at adjudicating a K debate.

Framework: I never did framework debate. I understand what most frameworks say, I conceptually understand how to debate a framework and how framework arguments work, but I'm definitely not going to be great at adjudicating a dense framework debate.

High Theory: I never ran these types of positions nor did I debate them much.


How to get better speaks: Slow down on author names.

Side note:
Use your best judgement on what to read against lay kids if you're a nat circuit debater. There's a comfortable middle between a theory-heavy, high-theory, super fast round & a lay round.

About me: I did debate for 3 years at Strake Jesuit in Houston Texas. I qualled to TOC as a junior and as a senior. My senior year I won a few tournaments, got eleven bids, and I got to Octas of TOC.
