The Tournament of Burgers Office Pool

Time to test your patty prognostication skills!

Fill out this bracket and submit your entry by 9 a.m. Wed., March 19. You'll be up against hundreds of other would-be burger experts, so choose wisely and enter often. Scoring will be weighted, so if you don't do well in the first round you may still be able to pull out a victory.

You can enter as many times as you'd like, but we won't count your ballot unless it is filled out completely. Pick every single beefy victor all the way to the champion and you could win!

Besides the priceless fame of being mentioned in the august pages of CL, the person who best predicts the winners of the Tournament of Burgers will receive a $100 gift certificate to the Bay area's best burger joint, wherever that turns out to be, along with the envy of thousands.

We'll also be handing out a People's Choice Award for Best Burger to the restaurant that gets the most votes by the masses. Your favorite place may not tickle our fancy, but you can still help them get the press they justly deserve by putting them at the top of your brackets.

So get out and sample some burgers, or just dig into your incredible burger knowledge base. You could be CL's Burgermeister of Bracketology!

Deadline: Wed., March 19 at 9 a.m.
