After playing the current T3 board for quite a while, I would be surprised if anybody was able to submit a time. Maybe we should change the board.

Aww, I was enjoying that board! Of course, I hadn't gotten more than about 30% in, but still....

Finally, there are no more divisions. S69 will be the first season since divisions have been established in S4, where all players (the few remaining ones...) are together in div1. Might be a tough season to win a single T or the whole season.

With that background, I'm lucky that I could win S68, nearly two years after my last season victory.
@EWQM., thank you for rethinking your retirement Wink. I guess your submissions in the last few tournaments helped myself much more than they did for Lutz Huh.

Bottom players will have to bust their ass for single points.

@Stephan: Congratulations!
@Lutz: Sorry!

I did my best to keep things interesting between you two until the very last tournament. (and win 2 boards in the meantime)

@Lutz, Stephan: The 21.01 was my first completed game this week and I got it less than 3 minutes after nymike told me "this is your board for sure". The other 3 boards I completed were 21.56, 21.17 and a 24.

@EWQM.: I got my 22 already on Monday morning, before leaving for vacation. Unfortunately, I couldn't strike back then at the end of the week.

@hexx: Welcome back. If you rethought your retirement as well, it'll be - imho - impossible for Lutz or myself to win the season. Will be a race between EWQM. and you!

@Stephan: I'm just playing for fun, not particularly interested in T points or ranks.
Also played in S69T1 for less than half an hour, completed only 1 board in 23.90s, but didn't submit the score. Didn't like the board i guess... Tongue

Last T i played a bit more, 3 sessions of 1 hour each. Got 2x sub11s, a 10.04 and 9.73, both on 10+1 3bv boards completed in 10+1 clicks . If this is not perfection, i don't know what perfection is?!Wink Just have a look:https://youtu.be/ttI9f_TYG9s

@hexx: The video is crazy, played very well. But the board is a nice one, indeed. And probably, the 9.44 of EWQM. is perfection as well Smiley.

My 10.34 was played on a 14+1 board, 11 "isles" of them lonely 1s. So, seeing this video, I'm quite unhappy that I only had the saturday to get some submittable times, for this type of board it's always better to have different sessions to increase the chance of getting a ideally arranged board.

@Hexx: Welcome back!

@Stephan: I don't remember the board I got the 9.44 on but I had a surprisingly easy time getting sub11s that week. The 34 in T3 was the absolute physical limit for me - what a surprise that it was enough to win.

@Lutz: Wow! 61 is a really gret time for T4.

About T4: Before the 57 I had finished 61.1, 60.04, 60.08, 2 more 60s and lost a low 59 on the last click because of a very stupid mistake.

Here's the replay of the 57:

@EWQM: I managed to get 6x sub-60s:
The first was 55.42s (33+56 clicks), then 2x58s, a 55.70s (34+58), a 57.11s and finally the 54.85s (45+54) Smiley

So many unforced guesses Shocked

Now I'm a bit mad that I took so long to find the last square in my 57.

I'm really surprised with your discovery Shocked Shocked Shocked. if i counted correctly, i did 7 unforced guesses Wink, all in the first 19s of the game.
After that i played wisely Wink

On the other hand, just checked my 55s vids to find only 1 guess in each game Cool.
The vids are here: 55.42s https://youtu.be/0fwzRc4fyOg and 55.70s https://youtu.be/CwLZsAKZD4I

Finally, also checked your 57s vid to find 3 guesses.... Grin Grin Grin

Anybody of you is able to upload a time for S69/T8 Sad? If I try to submit a time, I get the results of S53/T8 (same grid) and an error message. I've written to Yariv about this, we'll see what is going to happen.
