Thanks to everyone who took part in this contest, especially the record number of British entrants.
Earlier than expected, the UK results (and the full international results) are now available.
The 2012 UK Puzzle Champion, earning a place in the UK WPC team is James McGowan! Congratulations.
In 2nd place, only 5 points behind James, was Neil Zussman, with David McNeill in 3rd place.
From the guest participants, Nikola Zivanovic (Serbia) was first, despite making one small error, which he made up for in bonuses by having over 40 minutes spare! Enough to push Shinichi Aoki and Takuya Sugiimoto (both Japan) into 2nd and 3rd places respectively, having both correctly solved 24/24 puzzles in time. Well done all!
