Congratulations to Jakub Ondrousek, Tantan Dai and Kota Morinishi for taking the top three places. Fourth successive SM win for Jakub in 2020!

Thanks to the 377 participants from 41 countries. Sinchai Rungsangrattanakul (Thailand) was the first to start the test and Stephanie D' Souza (India) was the last person to start the test. As noted by Kishore, 41 participants completed the set within the allotted time, and 359 participants (95.23%) scored non-zero points. The median score of the test was 45.

Also noticed that Para edged Pranavmanu for 18th place by (approximately) 0.0000009 seconds.

Top 3 for countries with 10+ participants:

India(138): Prasanna Seshadri, Rohan Rao and Rishi Puri
Japan(27): Endo Ken, Hideaki Jo and Takuya Sugimoto (2nd-4th)

Congratulations to Jakub , Tantan & Kota for finishing in top 3 and also Prasanna , Rohan & RIshi for taking the top 3 spots among the Indians.

Coming back to the sudokus , I had created 6 variants and Kishore created 2. Out of this 4 of mine were selected and 1 of Kishore's was selected. My little killer lost out to Kishore's little killer ( for obvious reason - although very difficult , it was a beautiful puzzle ). Kishore had also made a Mathrax but that was too difficult to be included . Two of my sudokus that did not make it were Little killer and Group sum ( you can find them on my blog ).

You must have noticed that all the grids were numberless. I wanted the theme of the test to be Numberless and asked Kishore to create keeping this in mind. I hope we succeeded in creating a good set. As an author , my personal favourite was 9x9 Killer. Kindly share your feedback on the forum.
