The Campaign Against Cancer is a competitive tournament played in a "pod format." After registration, players will be divided into groups of 8 players each (as evently as possible) and this wil form a pod. The players within each pod will play 3 rounds of swiss play against only those other players assigned to his or her pod. Once round three is complete, all players will break for a lunch and at that time, the software will reorganize the pods. Upon returning for lunch, players will be assigned to a new pod with peers that performed similarly to him before the lunch break. These new pods will be Division A, Division B, Division C, etc. Players will then play 3 more rounds of swiss within their pod. The winner of Division A will be the tournament champion, but the winners of Divisions B, C, D etc will also receive prizes for winning their divisions.
