WSC update

Just back from Bulgaria. Well done, Kota Morinishi, who has successfully defended his title as World Sudoku Champion. It was also fun to catch up with many who are gradually becoming better friends from this annual tournament. Some fabulous puzzles too. Great fun!

British results:
David McN 19th
Heather G 44th 1,790 pts
Neil Z (B-team) 1,765 pts
Mark G 48th 1,740 pts
Tom C 49th 1,737 pts

All 4 A-team members in the top 50 is a great result, as is David's top 20 finish. This and our team round performances took the UK's A team up to 8th, ahead of some teams we would never expect to beat. Note that participants who did not qualify for official A teams do not get officially placed, so probably a dozen or so people, including Neil, finished ahead of me without pushing me down from 48th. Bad luck, Tom, who was reeling me in all the way after his bad first two rounds and came up short by the tiniest possible margin.

And perhaps I'm the only person in the world who cares about this UK one-two in the Over-50's category: 1st David McNeill, 2nd Me.
