NorCal Tournament 2, also known as NorCal Tournament 2: The Big One, was a Northern California tournament that took place on October 28th, 2006. It was part of a series of Melee tournaments in Northern California. The installments saw some of the largest crowds since Tournament Go, which was also well-attended tournament series at the time it took place. The NorCal Tournament series mainly featured smashers from California, but also included players from out of state, such as Japan's S-Royal.
The 129 entrants were seeded into 16 pools, the top 2 of whom advanced to a 32-man professional bracket.
- Ken coined the term Wobbling following Wobbles' 9th place victory. Wobbles had apparently used the technique excessively at this tournament.
