Speed doesn't matter as long as I can understand.
I put a lot of emphasis on logic. If you're running a K, make sure it is LOGICAL. I am not a huge fan of LX of omission but will vote on it if you convince me there is no reason that they should have left out the specific area you are covering with your K.
Philosophy is important, framework is important but neither is necessary.
Be classy, but be stern.
CX is the most important individual section. Win the CX and it certainly helps your chances to win the round
I am a traditional LD judge. I also judge policy so K's are fine as well, but be clear about LX.
Ask me any question that you need, I have been around speech and debate for 10+ years.
