Thanks to the 337 participants, and the 48 finishers.
Congratulations to Tiit Vunk, Tantan Dai and Kota Morinishi for taking the top 3 spots. Tiit was the only one to finish under 40 minutes. Also, Congratulations to Prasanna Seshadri, Rohan Rao and Kishore Kumar for taking the top three spots from India.
Thanks to James Peter for authoring this round! His debut on LMI as an author and some excellent creations in this contest. Scattered 9x9 was, not surprisingly, the least (correctly) submitted grid.
Those who missed taking part in this test can still take this test unofficially.
Thanks to LMI for giving me this opportunity. As someone who has never set a contest level set of sudokus, it was very much gratifying to have someone like Rakesh Sir, to help me out. Again Thanks to all the participants who have taken part in this competition. Congratulations to Tiit Vunk, Tantan Dai and Kota Morinshi for securing the top 3 spots. From India, Congrats to Prasanna Seshadri, Rohan Rao and Kishore Kumar for their win.
Thanks to Rakesh Sir for test solving the puzzles and coordinating everything that was required to be done.
Thanks for all your positive Feedback.
Hope it will all continue to do so.
