Fantastic set of sudokus! This should be the level of SM rounds according to me.
Wonderful contest.

Favourite sudokus:
Thermo 6x6
Pencilmarks 6x6
Thermo 9x9

Thanks Kumaresan!

It's nice how it shows an update after each time I look at the results. Green ones are the ones who are solving and the orange color shows if someone new has finished the round. But it doesn't work with the top 20. It's difficult to tell who is the new solver who made it into top 20. Am I the only one who it bothers?

I felt very exhilarated after completing this contest. Almost all the sudokus had a crystal clear and highly enjoyable solve path. According to me, this should be the standard of SM rounds so that beginners don't get intimidated. Some of my favourite sudokus were 9*9 diagonal, 6*6 pencilmarks and 9*9 thermo.

Hats off to the author, LMI and test solvers.

As the person currently in 20th I find it annoying that I won't know who knocks me out!

Nice contest to start the season! I had some trouble with my printer and had to restart my computer. I noticed that the contest timer was reset after restarting my computer. It didn't give me any advantage because of the printer issues :) but you might want to check why that happened.

Very nice Sudoku puzzles in this test. Each puzzle has a good logical flow.
My personal favourite in this test is both Thermo Sudoku puzzles.
Thanks, Kumaresan for this wonderful set of puzzles.

Echoing what Rohan said, felt this was the perfect set of sudokus with regards to difficulty level and quality as well. Enjoyed the sudokus. My solve was a bit slow, as I encountered snags in the Diagonal sudoku and the 8 pointer classic, but was more or less smooth elsewhere. Favorites would be the Thermo 9*9 and the Thermo 6*6. Thank you, Kumaresan sir.

Kumaresan's sudokus are usually very difficult to solve. It was a pleasant surprise that the sudokus in the set were mostly of moderate difficulties. The sudokus were nice to solve as well. I broke the alphabet 9x9 and was stuck in diagonal 9x9. My favourites were thermo 9x9, pencilmarks 6x6, thermo 6x6 and windoku 9x9. The classic sudokus were nice as well. Enjoyed this set of sudokus by Kumaresan.

Wrong score is showing for me.
Pressing submit button two times reduced the mark unnecessarily.
If these are the discrepancies please rectify it.

Your score is showing as 30. Is that a wrong score?

At the outset I thank LMI for giving me an opportunity to author SM1.
Thank one and all for active participation in the contest.
I am very happy to see the positive feedback.
As Akash said Normally I use to submit hard puzzles and after testing either its difficulty level is reduced or replaced with new one. But this time except Alphabet all are accepted as it is.
special Thanks to Rakesh Rai for his cooperation guidance and test solving for this contest.
congrats Tantan Dai, Tiit Vunk and Seungjae Kwak for taking the top 3 positions.
Congrats to Prasanna Seshadri , Rohan Rao and Pranav Kamesh for taking the top 3 positions from Indian participants.
