Results of 2022 UK Puzzle Championship

Post by puzzlemad »

Congratulations to Freddie Hand who has won the UK Puzzle Championship for the first time, completing the double along his recent success at the UK Sudoku Championship. Freddie solved all of the 23 puzzles correctly with over 35 minutes to spare, a fantastic performance. It was a close run thing between the two previous UKPC winners with James McGowan and Neil Zussman both completing 23 puzzles correctly with James coming out on top. The UK podium is thus:

1 Freddie Hand
2 James McGowan
3 Neil Zussman

A full list of UK results can be found here


The championship was also open to international participation with a total of 3 participants submitting correct answers to all 23 puzzles within the 2 ½ hour limit and a further 7 submitting correct answers to 22 puzzles. Walker Anderson (USA) has taken victory with an amazing time of under 1 hour 35 minutes with Rob Vollmert (Germany) taking 2nd place around 1 ½ minutes faster than Freddie who took third place. The international podium is thus:

1 Walker Anderson (USA)
2 Rob Vollemert (Ger)
3 Freddie Hand (UK)

Thanks for organising, Liane.

I was doing so well for the first 84 minutes. If I'd carried on at that rate instead of failing to complete anything else...

Thanks Liane for running the test smoothly as always.
I apologize about the visual puzzle that may have put off some solvers.

As announced, we'd like to give away our new puzzle magazine (PULZE) to the overall winner, top UK finisher and the 29th placer.
Congratulations to Walker Anderson, Freddie Hand and Branko Ceranic!

Winners have been contacted via email. Please let me know if you didn't get notified.
