It is almost a given that we expect people who organize debate tournaments and participate in them to lose at some point and for somebody else to win. I think it would be wierd if they actually won. For instance, if we "Winner of Spinko's debate tournament is... Spinko!" That would be awkward to see him crown himself as the winner of his debate tournament. I wanted to create a debate tournament (with very strict rules to ensure that reaches completion at whatever cost but I also want to participate and win but probably won't due to being in a double bind of either losing or feeling awkward upon winning. In any case, has anyone given thought to what happens when the tournament organizer wins?
