MSO: didn't attend, as was predicted. Times Sudoku: I came 2nd, as was predictable. Well done, Tom Collyer, the only person in the field I KNOW is better than me. Note careful phrasing to allow that others may be.

This time next week I'll be solving at the World Sudoku Championship in Sofia. Can't deny I'm excited.

Thought for the day: The WSC and WPC (World Puzzle Championship) are always run back-to-back, which is very sensible, as many compete in both. Unquestionably there is always a vibe that the WPC is the senior discipline, and of course this will be the 24th WPC and only the 11th WSC. While I'll acknowledge that sudoku is the younger discipline, I note that it is the one that generates all the outside interest, including press coverage - as people can understand what it's about in theory due to exposure to sudoku, while (logic-style, language-neutral) 'puzzles' have to be explained in some detail.

At some point the WSC will seem like the more important competition, I think.
