Pound 2 was a Super Smash Bros. Melee national tournament held by Plank during June 16th-17th, 2007, in Mount Airy, Maryland. It was sponsored by Major League Gaming, and was the second tournament in the MLG Smash Series circuit of 2007.
The doubles tournament was criticized for forcing various teams to play 1-on-2 matches in the first round of winners' bracket, due to some players being unable to turn up on time. Due to this, top professional teams such as Mew2King and PC Chris, Taj and Forward, and Chillin and ChuDat were immediately sent into losers' bracket, and teams consisting of lesser skilled players were able to advance through the winners' bracket without much difficulty. Despite this, Mew2King and PC Chris still managed to win the doubles tournament through losers' bracket, and Taj and Forward made it to losers' semis. Chillin and ChuDat were upset by XIF and Green Mario in the third round of losers' bracket, resulting in one of their worst doubles placements ever (13th).
