Just like in 2015, the Tabmasters for the Heart of Europe 2016 International Debating Tournament are Stepan Klos, a 20 year old Czech debater and student of Computer Science, and Daniel Azaz, a 17 year old Anglo-Slovenian speaker, writer, and founder and Secretary-General of the MUN (Model of United Nations) Society of Slovenia. More information about them can be found in their short bios.
Tabbing at Heart Europe is done in the TRPC (Tab Room on the PC) software, used at hundreds of other debating competitions on the high school and college levels, and it involves power-pairing. Power-pairing simply means that the draw for each round is based on the previous performance of teams, pairing those that have similar amount of previous wins and overall points.
The use of the TRPC software allows our Tabmasters to calculate draws quickly and share them easily online, while the powerpairing ensures that the debates feel challenging, but fair, throughout the whole tournament.
