Lord SundayJudge: Lord Sunday
Win awarded to: Bugsy460
I believe that Bugsy deserves the win because he gave a clear and concise reasoning why this debate should be on his side. Living is an important part of life and should not ever be infringed upon. Also the pro team just forfeited all of their turns.

LTAD2108Judge: LTAD2108
Win awarded to: Keerthi
I think the reason that Bugsy lost is BECAUSE he used his own experience: if he doesn't want to die himself, then his experience is irrelevant. Therefore, even though the pro team forfeited each round, they didn't need to really comment, as Bugsy's ignorance speaks for itself. LTAD2108 hereby awards the win to the pro team, and recognises that Keerthi did not need to comment on Bugsy's stupidity and blatant ignorance.

Despite my reasoning for awarding Keerthi the win, I do think that he could have put a little more effort into debating his point. Whilst he didn't NEED to comment, it would have been helpful, as it would outline his actual views. As for Bugsy, rather than using his own experience to back up points such as this, perhaps refer to case studies, as well as people he has known (anonymously, obviously), and not just his own irrelevant experience.
