Congratulations Lutz, Stephan and Chronic. This was probably the hardest tournament board ever (that was solved and didn't get replaced by a different board).

I got to 40 or less mines several times but then either had to guess or lost because of my own mistakes.

@EWQM.: I was about to suggest replacement Wink, but as Lutz had already submitted a time, this wouldn't have been fair anymore Smiley. I also lost some games on my own mistakes or forced guesses...

@Lutz: 25 hours is huge, I spent about 5 in three "sessions". 15 boards is incredible. Very good job, you more than deserve this T win! And I knew I am not at all competitive on these boards Wink
About T5: low 11 is already competitive Angry, I need to play more often again to beat this. Let's see what Sunday says.

@Stephan: Mike asked my on sunday whether I thought we should ask for a replacement. I said let's wait until Tuesday and see if Lutz can solve it. I was quite motivated to complete a board but didn't have a lot of time to play Nonosweeper last week. I suppose I spent around 3 hours on T4 and most likely won't spend any more time on T5.

This was the winning board: https://youtu.be/tR1X2VC6vRg
No guessing involved, I think.

My strategy was to only solve boards with at least three scattered mine-free columns (those appeared quite often) and some high numbers somewhere on the right.

@all: If you have problems in playing S79/T6 as the software announces "Tournament info is up-to-date", you can update the T code manually. Use http://nonosweeper.com/cgi-bin/tourncode.cgi and update the T code and the closure date in %appdata%\Nonosweeper\Nonosweeper.ini.

Oh, S80/T6 has a current standing with myself and Lutz equalled in #1 and #2.
Should that really remain the final ranking till Sunday, I'll be very happy that I was able to play on early Sunday morning and didn't hold back my time Wink.

@Stephan and Lutz: I won't have time to play on saturday so I'll stay at 111. Do with this info whatever you want. Wink
