Flame of Recca
G Gundam
Grappler Baki 2nd season
Hajime no Ippo
Hunter x Hunter
Slam Dunk
Yakitate!! Japan
Yume-iro Patissiere
Yuu Yuu Hakusho

Out of these, Flame of Recca and Yuu Yuu Hakusho have big shounen super power tournaments (I think one tournament lasted like 60 episodes in YYH). Very standard material. Hajime no Ippo had at least one, maybe two small sports tournaments along with Slam Dunk, which had a big one. Yumeiro Patissiere and Yakitate Japan have many baking tournaments, with Yakitate having the bigger ones and Yumepati having many smaller ones.

These are fairly common in battle, sports, game and baking shows. You may also want to look at the first arc of Kaiji for an interesting game tournament.
