Round 1 results up. I thought that was a tough set. I'm a bit annoyed to have wasted a bit of time convincing myself that the "Sum Next to 9" was impossible, and still haven't worked out what is going on with the magic square.

But otherwise a good run for me, even accounting for a silly mistake entering a code from puzzle 1 into puzzle 2's space (although in all honesty given my week so far I'm surprised my mistakes were limited to just that).

I presume there's a good reason David M isn't competing this year. Top 3 UK are remarkably close together:

46 Tom Collyer 462 points
47 Mark Goodliffe 458 points
55 Heather Golding 433 points

Tiit smashed the set in 62 minutes, 10 minutes ahead of Kota in 2nd place, who was another 5 ahead of Tantan in 3rd. Results like that seem to confirm that this was pretty tough going in comparison to previous years. There were 19 finishers in total.
