It was a good experience to participate in the contest.
Last year, in Round1: One had to solve 8 6*6 sudoku in 15 minutes.
In Round 2: there were 4 classic sudokus and 4 of variant types, 1 each of odd-even, trio, diagonal and alphabet sudoku. And time allotted for the second round was 1hr..but to get selected one had to solve all the sudokus in less than 40mins. Let's see if there will be a change in the format.
I am looking forward for the contest. Best wishes for all the participants. Just enjoy the competition, it will be a great experience.

Not exactly. It was the top 4 participants, regardless of time. In the Mumbai round, the 4th qualifier did not finish the set within the 60 minutes I think. It depends on difficulty. Going by the announcement, I suppose this year its top 3 participants and not top 4 who get selected.

Ohh..i was assuming on the basis of my last year experience.

I have read the terms and conditions at toi.in/sudoku, they have mentioned in terms and conditions that top3 will be selected in city rounds. But they also have mentioned in the rules that top4 will be selected.
I am confused.

Top 3 from each city qualify for national finals.
From the 12 finalists, top 4 will be selected.

Any Sudoku variant can be made easy/difficult and also it could depend on personal preferences. Assuming it is similar to last year, the Sudokus will have points assigned to them, which is an estimation of difficulty.

Practice Puzzles for Round 1 of Times Sudoku Championship (5th and 6th July at various cities)
http://swaroopg92.blogspot.com/2014/07/practice-puzzles-for-round-1...
Mostly Easy but 1 or 2 are medium difficulty. This is mainly to give you idea about 1st round and its based on previous years experience. Remember in actual contest sudokus might be difficult than whats here. :)
Good luck to all with 1 day to go. :)

This one is near Mallya Hospital on Vittal Mallya Road. Kanteerava Stadium is across the road from here.

Times Sudoku Championship 2014: Delhi Round
It was a great experience and a tough competition than last year. A huge turn out from Delhi this time too. First round was organised in 4 phases. There were changes in first round this year, 1st round includes 4 classic sudokus and time allotted was 20minutes. But no changes in 2nd round.
With the return of two veteran sudoku solvers, Ritesh Gupta and Sumit Bothra, comeptition had became even tougher this year as compared to last year. It was a great experience to compete with the best sudoku solvers in India. Looking forward for the Mumbai-finals. Congratulations to the winners.
The top 3 are:
1. Sumit Bothra
2. Ritesh Gupta
3. Dileep Singh(myself)
