This week in competitive programming

The final chance to hop onto the TCO train was on Saturday: TopCoder Open 2014 Round 2C (problems, results, top 5 on the left). The final 50 competitors who will battle for the chance to get to the onsite finals in San Francisco were selected, and here's the entire set of 150 Round 3 participants. Congratulations to Vladislav on winning the round!

At the same time, the 100 best contestants who have already advanced to Round 3 could participate in the elite Parallel Round 2C, but only 19 chose to do so (results, top 5 on the left). Egor won the parallel round with a big margin (I usually think of the margins on TopCoder in challenges, so his margin was 3+ challenges), and he was also faster than Vladislav from the main round.

And finally, Codeforces Round 254 took place on Sunday (problems, results, top 5 on the left). It was the first time we have five different flags in top 5 since March, and Adam got the first place - congratulations!

I've skipped this week's rounds because I was taking some rest during the weekend, and want to share some nice views that I've enjoyed instead of participating in TopCoder and Codeforces:

Thanks for reading, and see you next week!
