the table had 2 judges with over 30 comps, myself (22), 2 others in the teens and one with 5 comps.
he said judge both samples and only score the best entry.
i have been instructed to judge both and average the scores.
nothing in the cbj handbook on how to handle it.

SuperQue, that's exactly the right answer!
I've heard about some other instances of TCs or other judges trying to "instruct" their table. I wish that the Contest Reps would be told about this immediately - none of the Reps that I know would take kindly to this behavior.
The only time that anyone can tell a judge how to score is when the Rep issues a DQ. Period.
