Philadelphia, PA — Congratulations to Scarsdale’s Rahul Gosain for winning the 2015 Penn Round Robin! In finals, Rahul defeated Del Mar’s Varun Bhave on a 2-1 decision (Massey*, Houston, Koh). Congratulations to both debaters!
This year, the Penn Round Robin will be bringing back the “timeout system” for elimination rounds! Instead of prep time, debaters were given 4 “full” timeouts every round, during which a debater may stop the round for 1 minute, and 2 “30 second” timeouts, during which a debater may stop the round for 30 seconds. Timeouts may be called at any point during the debate (even during an opponent’s speech). Debaters are encouraged to use timeouts to halt their opponent’s momentum, to mull over a tough CX question, or to check new 2AR arguments.
