and the difficulty level...is it as easy as delhi times...or regional times newsppr...or somewhat difficult...........more that is like the one displayed on http://prasannaseshadri.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/frame.png?


I don't think the preliminaries will have something like that at least. As I said, the Beginners' Contests are a more accurate description of round 2.

You mean on my blog? My blog's easy category would probably be equivalent to one of the higher pointers in round 2 The best practice you can possibly get in this short time span is to go and solve Beginners' Sudoku Contest July. If you do that, you'll be well equipped for last year's 2nd round standards.

Either the instructions are misleading here or they've changed the format from last year. Last year, we had 8 6x6 Sudokus to finish in the 15 minutes. I know 8's a lot more than 1, but 6x6s are pretty easy so if its the same it should be pretty finishable.

This year (like last year), it is happening in four metros only. If you want to participate you will need to travel to one of these cities on the given dates, as there is no online round this time.

Congrats to the 4 :) Hopefully I make it in Mumbai and finally get to meet and compete against Rishi in person. Also, good show by Kishore to out-score Jaipal. Congrats to the person at 2nd, not sure if its a newcomer or some member here who I'm forgetting. Either way, finishing ahead of Kishore and Jaipal is quite good.

Well, having spoken to Chennai Round winner Rishi, the structure seems to be largely similar to last year's. The first round is 6x6s (last year had 8) to be solved in 15 minutes, and the second round seems to be the same 4 classic/4 variant structure as last year, with the only difference being that instead of two rounds of 30 minutes each, it is one round of 60 minutes (hence the timings of 40 and 42 for 2nd and 3rd places).

The regional rounds I think are biased completely ignoring EAST ZONE focussing only on west and south zones of India. With such short notice, how can one living in eastern zone states like West Bengal, Bihar, Assam etc. plan their travel and stay.

You mean rough work sheets? Yes of course, I think so. I'll wait for the organizers to confirm but I don't see how that helps gain any unfair advantage, since in the end you'll have to submit the booklet that's provided only.

It was an enjoyable yesterday at the event for me and 2 of my other friends.Sudokus were of a very good quality and it was nice solving all of them.I also got to speak a little with some of the bigwigs in Indian sudoku who otherwise came out as very humble and soft spoken to me .
Here's the article in Times of India,Chennai edition.They have made a mistake though(not the first time i think :)?!).I was joint third and not the second to complete .

A great day with good organization. The puzzles were too good and it was nice to be part of the city finals one more time. Congrats Kishore and Ezhilarasi, the new faces from Chennai in National Round. :-)

Nice to meet Rakesh, Rishi and Jaipal and interacting with them for first time was a nice experience.

All the best to the participants of the Delhi round of TSC 2013.

Congrats to the winners. Two newcomers, and one of them ended up winning the round, that's pleasantly surprising. I suppose Ritesh couldn't find the time to make it to the rounds this year? Wonder what the timings are of these 4.
