UKSC Results and 2016 UK WSC Team

Post by PuzzleScot » Wed 15 Jun, 2016 4:15 pm

The UKSC is over, and the results are now available.

Congratulations to Heather Golding on her first win!

Mark Goodliffe was runner-up, with Emma McCaughan taking 3rd place.

Combining the results with the UK Open qualifier in February, the final UK team for the World Championships in Slovakia in November October is:
  • Tom Collyer
    Heather Golding
    Mark Goodliffe
    Emma McCaughan
Reserves are Neil Zussman and Adam Bissett.

Top 3 international guests were Takuya Sugimoto (Japan), Kota Morinishi (Japan) and Seungjae Kwak (Korea).
Congratulations to all. Full results are available here.

Finally, many thanks to Tom Collyer for compiling this year's UK Championship, and for the many contributors and testers that have ensured a high quality, error-free competition once again.

There was only one contributor this year :lol: But I'd definitely like to reiterate thanks to the testers who came together at very short notice to help ensure everything ran smoothly!

Really impressive to see Heather finish all the puzzles within 2 hours. A really well deserved victory, with a close fight behind for 2nd place. Congratulations also to Takuya for topping the table for the first time!

Congratulations to Heather, and to Tom, Mark and Emma. Best wishes for Slovakia later on in the year. Thank you to everyone involved in setting and running both of the sudoku contests. Maybe I should start having a look at the puzzle contests instead !

I think the top 4 have now all confirmed they intend to compete? In which case, congrats to all 4, and good luck in October! :)

Edit: Just noticed it says November in your first post Alan, but I'm pretty sure we're all going to turn up at the right time nonetheless. ;)

Does anyone know why the solutions booklet for the 2016 UKSC is still not available?

Wrong thread, but it's because I never made one. I can do by the end of the week
