 What was your opinion of the distribution of easy/hard puzzles? Just right
 What did you think about the puzzle quality of the test? Very nice
 Which set of puzzles did you like the most? 234 Outside Sudoku
 Of the puzzles you solved/attempted, how well did the point values reflect the difficulty? Most puzzles were worth the right amount


Thanks for a nice set of sudokus Gaurav.I felt that the set was mostly on the easier side and sudokus were very approachable.

I say this because I broke Unordered Distances(9*9) twice and spent about ~30-35 minutes on the same (which is not surprising as I had too much distraction here when I solved) and at one point, I had no hopes of finishing the contest.But, fortunately the other sudokus were easier.

Favourites are 234 outside(9*9) and Toroidal (9*9).
Thanks again !

I can take a mini break now from SM as I co-author the next round with Akash.

SM3 was dedicated to Shaheer and every participant have paid their tribute to Shaheer by their participation. I whole heartedly thank each and every one of you.

I had almost completed the sudokus set for SM3 when we recevied the tragic news of Shaheer demise and I decided to change the entire theme of the set in his memory. Thanks to organizers to provide me some extra time.

Coming to the feedback that this is easy set, YES this was well thought out decision that this set should be approachable and on the easy side with few high pointers.

I am thankful for your feedback and hopefully will keep improving.

Congratulations to People who are Top-3 overall and Top-3 in India and all the participants. Please participate regularly and dont get scared with Top-50/60 scores, you will surely reach there with practice and regular participation.

I would like to thank Rakesh Rai who is always amazing support. He always remain cool head in accomodating last minute change requests. He is actual hero of running entire show, we are just supplying the sudokus and amount of work he is putting in backend is just superb which always remain unnoticed, believe me it is the most hard part. Thanks Rakesh.

Finally thanks to LMI for giving me the opportunity, which helps author like me to stand with world class authors.
