Alex Bisnath Paradigm

I'm a first year out from Newsome. I did LD for three years, mostly traditional but I went to my fair share of circuit tournaments also. My email is rabisnath@uchicago.edu if you want to ask questions before the round, or just add me to an email chain. I probably don't know anything about the topic.

I'm not super picky about what arguments you run, just make sure you give me plenty of weighing, especially for non-T affs.

I can flow speed decently well; make sure to slow down for advocacy texts, interps, taglines and author names. If I can't understand you I'll say "clear."

Framework: I love nuanced, interactive framework debates. I think framework needs to be justified, but I'm pretty open minded about what fw can be.

Ks: K debates are fun, just make sure there's interaction at the fw level.

Theory: I default to competing interps and no RVIs. I don't have much patience for frivolous theory; the sillier a shell, the lower my standard will be for responses.

Tricks: I really don't like tricks, it's probably in your best interest not to read them in front of me.

Don't be racist, homophobic or otherwise offensive. But also, just be nice to each other.
