    Going for a CP with a DA net-benefit in the 2NR

    IMO - the #1 reason why people fuck up DA/CP 2nrs is a failure to properly diagnose what you're ahead and behind on. To win these debates, you need to win that the disadvantage is larger than whatever reason the CP doesn't solve the affirmative, whatev...

    Cool New Affirmative

    NikhilPachika - Today, 11:50 AM

    Going for a CP with a DA net-benefit in the 2NR

    NikhilPachika - Today, 11:48 AM

    CP and DA is simple when you have thought about it before the round. I think it's important to understand the underlying theory behind the strategy. The point is that the CP can solve all of the impacts presented by the 1AC. Thus, both the CP...
