259 Sudoku enthusiasts qualify for the nat’l finals

Sudoku enthusiasts in the country have significantly increased as shown by the good number of puzzlers who appeared in various SM Malls and schools to participate in the regional elimination round of the 6th Philippine Sudoku Super Challenge (PSSC). From more than a thousand participants, only 259 have been declared as national qualifiers of which the finalists are 46 for the Grand Master, 149 for the Sudoku Wizard category and 64 for the Sudoku Whiz Kid category.

The national finals of the 6th Philippine Sudoku Super Challenge will be held at SM North EDSA, Quezon City on Saturday, January 28, 2012.

Organized by MTG, Philippines and supported by SM Supermalls and the Philippine Star, the number puzzle contest will make the participants from 12 regions to answer more than a dozen Sudoku puzzles arranged in ascending difficulty. Since the national finals will be an ultimate battle of the best, then spectators and supporters alike can expect a tougher mental battle because former national and international Sudoku heroes will be around to hook the fabulous prizes.

Dr. Chua, MTG president said that the Sudoku national finalists should arm themselves only with speed and accuracy so that numbers will fall in the right place. He further stressed that they should also make use of the time wisely and surely and should turn in the contest papers earlier than the allotted time in order to avail the bonus points.

The Sudoku finalists whose names are listed below should make a confirmation of their willingness to participate in the national finals through Mr. Mark Tubo at email address, mtg.sudoku@gmail.com on or before December 20, 2011. Please do not forget to indicate the subject header of your email letter as: Yes – for 6th PSSC National Finals.

In addition, the national qualifiers are requested to provide Mr. Tubo the following information: finalist’s name, gender (or sex), school name or company name, birthdate and age, t-shirt size, mobile contact number and grade or year level (if student).

Please always logon (at least once a week) to this website for more updates on the 6th PSSC.
