 What was your opinion of the distribution of easy/hard puzzles? Too many medium difficult puzzles
 What did you think about the puzzle quality of the test? Fairly Nice
 Which set of puzzles did you like the most? Odd Even - 2Odd2Even Sudoku
 Of the puzzles you solved/attempted, how well did the point values reflect the difficulty? Many puzzles were worth too much or too little

At the outset I thank one and all who participated in the contest.

Most of the participants were happy with 50-50 concept, which was introduced in ASC2020 (Asian Sudoku Championship).

At the same time most of the contestants found the Killer-Little Killer 9x9 hard. In that puzzle a very simple logic (12) was kept in boxes 7-8-9 but it was unnoticed by most participants, which was surprising to me. If you haven’t put 4 in r8c2 then you will not have any logic path in this puzzle. After putting 4 in r8c2 then in box9 14 cage in row7, 86 can be eliminated and you can put 95 there.

In the left side little killer there is 19 and 31...both are sum of all maximum possibility of the cells. After the above, in box1 10 cage in row3 will be 1 and 9 as it is the only possibility.

Congrats to the top 3 ranked Indians as well as in the overall category.
