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

@EWQM.: S83/T2 14x13/140 19.85s was too fast for me. This season will be an easy catch for you!

S83/T3 25x25/394 279.03s

about 5s better than in S77 a year ago

@Stephan: We'll see. With Lutz missing the first 2 boards it's between us two now and we're not very far into S83 yet.

@EWQM.: After 3rd tournament, points are likely 24 vs. 18. If Lutz appears, or Caren, Maruda, anyone will catch up, it'll be 24 vs. 16, 15, 14. Don't think that I'll have a real chance Tongue.

Well, before the start of the season I knew I had a strong chance because I had decided to take a break from speedcubing. And since thursday this week I have even more time for Nonosweeper after work Cry. That is if I wanted to play more. Wink

4th tournament of the season and 4th PB on previously played tournament boards including 3 new overall PBs for these boards. I like how this season goes so far Smiley

But where is Lutz? Did anyone hear from him?

Don't worry, I'm still around. Couldn't play recently as I just returned from an extended holiday trip. Seems that I picked the right season to take a break. Wink

BTW: My honest congratulations on your new genius world record! Motivating enough for me to play a little more but I'm not sure whether your 121 seconds can be beaten.

Welcome back, Lutz! Hope you had a great holiday.

Thank you. I'm sure 115 should be possible with a decent board, maybe even 110 with enough luck.
