Sir, in fact I am happy and proud that my created sudokus are appearing on this great platform of LMI. I humbly thank for the opportunity given to me to be a co author in SM-2 and necessary support extended by all senior expert sirs in this regard. I will be eager to contribute as much as possible from my end, in future too, for the love of Sudoku.

Fun and Challenging contest. Felt hard for SM.
Got stuck at Rossini Sudoku, very challenging.
My favorites were Diagonal skyscraper and Pointing Evens.
Congratulations Dhruv on your Debut authoring. Looking forward to more from you in the future.
Thanks, Akash and LMI.

A round with really nice puzzles. Had some problems with 7-th cassic, but eventually it worked out. Unordered distances was really nice puzzle and a bit challenging too. But favourites were rossini and pointing evens.

Really enjoyed this set. Usually my solving time for the high-pointers is close to or more than the number of points of the puzzle, so I was very surprised when I got the Rossini in 6 minutes - somehow I suspect I had some faulty logic that just happened to lead to the right answer. Also enjoyed the unordered distances, though it took me as long as I expected. Thank you to the authors!

Too hard for SM but nice set of sudokus. Particularly liked the Rossini and Diagonal Skyscrapers sets.
A little less difficulty would have made this extremely enjoyable.

Favourite sudokus:
7th Classic 9x9
Diagonal Skyscrapers 9x9
Rossini 6x6

Thanks Akash and Dhruv!

Excellent set of sudokus ! Had tremendous fun getting through the set although it was a bit of a rugged ride for me having broken the very first sudoku that I started with. Sudokus were on the harder side but of a high quality. I suspect the difficulty might have to do with the nature of variants used.
My favourites were Unordered Distances (14) and Pointing Evens (8).
Great job & well done Akash & Dhruv ! Thanks for the fun set.

I am not good at outside variants. But really enjoyed the outside and pointed evens which were fun and easy. I broke the classics and wasted time. I attempted part of the rossini but ran out of time. I enjoyed what I attempted :).

I thought that the 9*9 Rossini would be on tougher side seeing the points. But that turned out to be quite easy and straightforward when I solved it later. So I had a lackluster of 16 points, which made me dejected to some extent. My favourite ones were the 9*9 unordered distances and the 8 pointer classic which had a marvelous xy-wing hidden in it. Overall the sudokus were of impeccable quality and enthralled me a lot.
Huge thanks to both the authors.

Thankyou Akash & Dhruv for a nice set of puzzles, eventhough on a tougher side. Lost a few minutes at the start to get accustomed with the answering page. Of the solved ones, liked the 7th classic and the 9×9 unordered distance sudokus.

Congratulations to Tantan Dai, Kota Morinishi and Mingrui for topping the test and also to Prasanna Seshadri, Rohan Rao and Kishore Kumar for finishing in top 3 among the Indians.
The general feedback on this test was that it was a bit on the harder side. I feel it was mostly because of the choice of variants which were mostly uncommon for the online tests. I really enjoyed creating sudokus for this test and with Dhruv contributing with all classics and also 6x6 unordered distance, much of the workload for the test was shared. I feel Dhruv has the potential to author a full round next year. Some of us should make way for people like Dhruv to take up a full round.
Once again, thanks to all the participants.
