With the WPC/WSC happening in two weeks, I’ve decided to push back my next event until late October. I’ll be competing in the WSC only and will miss out on the WPC for several reasons:
- Thailand fielded in a proper sudoku team for the first time ever.
- Asking for a 5 day leave from college is impossible.
- No one from my country is staying for the WPC, so staying alone would be pretty sad (especially in the team rounds).
In my mind, I’m still more of a puzzle-generalist than a sudoku-specialist. I’m sure I’ll be sadder when the WPC booklet comes out, and I see what I’ll be missing out on.
I’m very excited for my WSC debut, there are over 150 participants! The semifinals seem too far of a reach so I’ll be happy with a top 30 finish.
