All current UC Berkeley students may register for the tournament. There is no registration fee. The tournament is played in teams of 2, so find a partner or drop by our meetings on Fridays at 7-9PM in 215 Dwinelle to see who wants to team up. Then sign up online using the Sign-Up button above.
After all six rounds, teams are ranked based on the number of rounds won. Ties are broken using two-step dominance. (Two-step dominance for your team is the number of rounds won by all the teams that your team beat. If you beat stronger teams, you will probably have a higher two-step dominance.)
All participating teams will receive consolation prizes and be guarenteed six rounds. Each member of the first place team will also receive a trophy. The top three teams will receive additional prizes valued up to $50. In addition, members of the top three teams will each receive two decks of customized Canasta Club playing cards.
