Excellent set of puzzles. Killer and Product were too good.
I found it strange that you always start with the most difficult puzzles (or you simply want to grab the highest pointers?)
This time, it was not planned. After I started the test, it takes some time for the sudoku grids to become visible. It just happened that I was scrolling up and down to find any grid which comes up first. Killer came up first - so I started there.

Also, most of the times, I do not try the remaining grids after the test. So, for me, its ok to miss a small pointer than a high pointer - as the maximum enjoyment would be after solving these high pointers.

Normally it is always beneficial to start with high pointers if we are not sure of completing all the puzzles in the test.... I try that too ... but if the variants are all known and if I feel I can complete all then I simply go in the order...

Thank you for this wonderful test !

Grids were very nice, I really enjoy to solve them. It was the second tournament of the day for me (after french prequalifs), and I'm happy to see that I can be competitive during 4 hours in a day. (certainly an important thing for competitions like WSC, where I haven't any experience).
Regarding LMI tests, I was impatient to find again a place in the top 10 on a test. As I was tester in January and Author in March, I had only the awful result of February test...

About grids: extraregions, consecutive, outside, inequality, irregular and killer enjoyed me particularly, as they were so nice and well constructed. All grids were good. The Product Frame was very tough, I have to redo it, because I couldn't solve it without a guess (of course it was wrong 1rst time, I think I spent something like 20-25 on that grid in total).

It's good to see that Janoslaw is back ! 4 times world champions taked logically the first two places. Thomas had a comfortable +11 minutes advance. Behind them (-> Human people ) , it was very tight between Nikola, Kota, Michael and Hideaki: only 1 minutes 39 separates these very good players.

Thanks again, I have so much pleasure to compete on LMI !

Hey Fred, you missed about some more good players: Minfang Lin, Rohan Rao, Fred Stalder and Sinchai R, who also completed the set (in a more humanly time ;-) )
