WSDC 2015 – Day 2 [RESULTS]

An interesting set of results and even a little spice of WSDC drama. Unfortunately still no official preliminary results available, and I’m still missing even win/loss results from 3 debates in R1, R2 and R3, and 4 in R4. Some teams only post a summary of the day after they get back to the hotel, so will update this as those come through. The team tab is also getting increasingly complicated not only because of missing results, but also as more teams involved in R0 have their bye-round. Hopefully this table is still decipherable, but if you have suggestions for a more reader-friendly structure let me know. As always, this is unofficial, any errors are entirely my responsibility and I make no guarantees of their accuracy.

In related news, the R4 Slovenia v Spain debate has been relocated to sometime this evening (@WSDC2015). This is the latest information after suggestions that Spain might have pulled out of the tournament altogether.
