Could someone please tell me how Round Robin works?

Maybe a mock draw and an explanation of the competition. Is the draw basically done like a regular draw, with each player in their section having their opponents twice? I have no clue.

In the case of the YEC it will be something like this

Pool A
#1
TBA
TBA
TBA

Pool B
#2
TBA
TBA
TBA


Everybody in each pool plays each other once. Then the top 2 in each pool will advance to the semifinals where Pool A's #1 will face Pool B's #2 and then Pool B's #1 will face Pool A's #2.

Curling is a winter sport played in many countries around the world

I don't know what shuffleboard is but I've heard that it's similar to shuffleboard on ice
