Pound 4 was a Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl national tournament hosted by Plank and TheTantalus from January 16th-18th, 2010, in Frederick, Maryland. With 347 entrants, it held the record for being the largest Melee tournament for three and a half years before being surpassed by EVO 2013's 709 entrants.
Pound 4 was the first tournament to have all of The Five Gods present. It was also the first US tournament for lots of European top players like Amsah or Overtriforce. For Sweden's Armada and Aniolas, who had previously attended GENESIS, it was their 2nd US tournament.
Prior to EVO 2018, Pound 4 was the last tournament (excluding sandbagging) at which Armada lost to someone other than Mango, Hungrybox, Mew2King, Leffen, PPMD, or Plup, those players being SilentSpectre in winners and Amsah in losers.
