Preliminary results are up: http://www.logic-masters.de/DSM/q_tabelle.php?id=51 its currently showing those who scored 150+ points (50%)

I'm a little annoyed I couldn't squeeze out the 19 point classic at the end, it was very doable. Mark Goodliffe has a great result in 63rd, beating more than a few notably seasoned names there!

Thanks Tom. Brilliantly done yourself. 31st with only 3 puzzles not submitted and no mistakes is a great result, though I know you're accustomed to this level. For me as you say this was a good one, as I hoped it would be when I saw the format, with no real monster (40-pt etc) puzzles. And I was lucky to finish my last one and get it entered with 6 seconds to spare. Of the 6 I didn't complete there was only one that I wished I had prioritised in the time allowed, which unfortunately means that there were 5 that I just couldn't have done in a reasonable time. I'd be very interested to know David McN's score (and time) when he's had a chance, and similarly if Neil Z has a go.

265 for me, but with the usual caveats for non-competitive solving. Didn't complete puzzles 6 and 7. Lost most of my time on the irregular, the irregular non-consecutive, the arrows and the consecutive puzzles i.e. some of the standard variants. Loved the new mathematical ones.

Mark, are you coming to the UKPA championships on 16-17 March? Everybody needs to be there.

Sadly not, David, owing to a prior engagement (Simon A's stag do for his second wedding, would you believe). A shame that I can never seem to get to this event, though I probably still can't take the time off to attend World tournaments even if I should ever qualify. Great score, by the way (caveats accepted).
