Congratulations to Mark Goodliffe, who has claimed a maiden UK Sudoku Championship. Mark finished the set of 16 mind-bending sudoku puzzles with almost 15 minutes to spare in a very strong performance, and now qualifies for the UK team at the World Sudoku Championships later this year in Bangalore. Joining Mark on the team is runner-up Heather Golding, who also finished the set within the 2 hours.

1. Mark Goodliffe - 804 pts
2. Heather Golding - 734 pts
3. Neil Zussman - 630 pts

The championship was also open to international participation, and was contested by the world's elite.

Congratulations Takuya!
