See 24 of the world’s top memory athletes compete for $76,000 in prize money in the 2nd annual Extreme Memory Tournament (XMT 2015), hosted by 4-time U.S. Memory Champion Nelson Dellis at Dart Neuroscience in San Diego on May 2-3.

XMT 2014 created quite a buzz last year and was featured in the New York Times (May 19, 2014). Top prize went to Simon Reinhard of Germany, who holds the current world record in playing card memorization (1 deck in 21.19 seconds).

This year’s event promises even more action. Contests are short, exciting, head-to-head memory battles. Competitors face off, challenge their memories in extreme ways, and win big!

Athletes will be placed into six groups of four and will compete in concurrent round-robin events on Day 1. Those who qualify for the playoffs will do battle in single-elimination Rounds of 16, Quarterfinals, Semifinals, Runner-up Match, and Finals on Day 2.

Further information and FREE tickets can be obtained on the tournament website:
