Since you don't get to choose your table and the same Judge's don't go to all of the comps, how does this "help" you as a cook to improve with out the comment cards? I can see knowing your score can tell you what area you were good or bad in though.
We don't really know what, if anything, KCBS will do with regard to using KCBScore to change judge behavior. Maybe nothing. What it DOES do is give the cooks a lot more information about their performance. Did you have a problem with your product, or did you hit an unlucky table? While the new system won't give you a conclusive answer, it gives you more insight into how you really did and what the judges might be thinking.
