Well, based on Mumbai, yes, specific instructions must have been given at some point to give your contact numbers so that you can be called up later in the day if you made it through to the next round. The answer sheets would've had a place to fill in your contact number.

Most of the people who had completed 8 in the first round, waited at the venue. They started announcing the names by 12:30. Don't know if they called up others. There was a bit of confusion. It is possible that a few people may have missed making it to the next round.

Congratulations to the Indian Top - 4.Without doubt ,this time i see India bettering their previous best of 7 in the points Table . I knew it was always going to be the case where the top 3 slots were already taken and it was only going to be a rat race for the fourth spot among the rest 13 .So Jaipal's performance on this account beating the others by a good margin is equally good and very commendable if not better than the top 3. I had a bad start in the sprint round due to some unknown reasons failing to enter even direct numbers and thereby completing only 11 of the 16 6X6 grids.
Then in the 2nd classics round too i had a false start getting the first 2 sudokus wrong and then had to correct them which cost me by Bonus as i could not get the requisite time to complete the last.In the 3rd round which was variants ,i have to thank Rakesh for his helpful suggestions on tackling the higher valued sudokus at the start.My approach has always been to start from the lower pointers and then proceed in order to the bigger valued ones.This time i changed my strategy a bit and i started with the big pointer ones after completing the first 2 lower pointers as i knew i had to beat Jaipal by at least 100 points to be in the race for the 4th slot and this paid off and i was content at the end of the 3rd round.Then in the final surprise round the `aftermath' of lunch had its effect on me.I scored Zero in that round.

The surprise round was a Sqaured outline sudoku with an absolutely empty Grid.For the advantage of the many who are unkwown to thistype it was a Diagonal sudoku + a Rhombus with its vertices touching R1C5 , R5C9 + R9C5 + R5C1.Digits dont repeat in the 2 principal diagonalsand along the sides of the Rhombus.Then each competetitor was given an envelope which had 9 3 x 3 sub boxes with numbers printed on each of them.Of course there were 3 x 3 sub-boxes which could be rotated 180 degrees and still be valid numbers.All the 3 X 3 sub boxes had to be translated to the 9 x 9 Grid and the sudoku was to be solved.Totally 250 points+Bonus and 50 minutes for completing the grid without help.-100 points for opting for help the first time ,wherein you can give a single 3 X 3 tile and ask where it should be placed.-50 points the second time you do that and again -50 points the third time.The bad thing from my perspective is that i opted for help twice
and and on both the occasions i opted for the 2 3 X 3 Boxes which i had already placed correctly! but was not sure whether it was correct.
To this moment even i am unsure why i did that .With the first help asked for with 32 minutes!! left on the clock and then the second time with 15 minutes on the clock .
Then after the 2 helps and with 70% of the grid over i was on track to complete the grid and salvage atleast 100 points when disaster struck again
as i forgot to rotate one of the tiles(I got to know this later from Gaurav)and therefore could not a place for it and ultimately I had to erase the entire
grid.Now i know how difficult it is to finish at the 5th and miss the top 4.I empathize with Swaroop on this account who missed the team not once but twice finishing 5th.
The moment the rules of the surprise round were explained before the start of the round i was reminded of the snap-shot sudoku in Turkey GP round in which i had broken the sudoku thrice and failed to complete.So i was feeling nervous and kind of unsure at the start.Obviously i have understood that wherever there is a puzzling touch to a sudoku it freaks me out and totally blanks my mind.

But i certainly enjoyed playing with the top 15 from India .I never realized the passing of time.It was as though i had caught a flight early morning and the next 7-8 hours had been sandwiched into a power-packed 1 hour slot.The sudokus were artistically and excellently constructed by Deb with whom i had the pleasure of sharing thoughts with and chatting(and Deb pls keep aside your thoughs of taking a break from LMI:)) for a long time .Thanks to Amit for the surprise round sudoku and the Frame sudoku.
Overall it was a good experience and I look forward to meeting Deb and the others sometime in the future soon.
All the Best once again to the Terrific Trio - Rishi , Rohan and PS and to Mr.consistent Jaipal!!Do well in china!
