============================== CFJ 2442 ==============================
A correct Win Announcement that states that a player has a score x +
yi such that xy >= 2500 causes that player to satisfy a Winning
Condition, even if that Win Announcement contains extra information
not required by the rules.

Gratuitous Arguments by ais523:
I'm particularly wondering if the announcement can itself
contain the clear labelling that it is a win announcement; I've got in
the habit of putting the label in a separate sentence, but putting it in
the same sentence would probably be clearer and look more natural.
Judge Murphy's Arguments:
"Announcement" is not explicitly defined, but Rule 478's definition of
"announces" implies that it is synonymous with "public message".
Rule 2186 defines "win announcement" as "a correct announcement
explicitly labeled as a win announcement". It does not specify whether
this labeling must occur in the same sentence as the content required
for a specific type of win announcement, so either method is acceptable
(provided that the rule defining the specific type is similarly
non-specific, which Rule 2187 is).
That said, the statement is FALSE on a technicality. Rule 2186 does
not define "win announcement" as an announcement that succeeds in
granting a Winning Condition, and this specific type of win announcement
fails to do so if any other players also have qualifying scores.
