An elimination week

The Apr 2 - Apr 8 week had a couple of competitions on the weekend. Codeforces Round 474 took place on Saturday (problems, results, top 5 on the left, analysis). Solving eight problems correctly in just over two hours is an amazing feat — OO0OOO00O0OOO0O00OOO0OO was on top of his game this time. Well done!

Yandex.Algorithm 2018 Round 3 on Sunday (problems with Yandex login, results, top 6 on the left, analysis) has completed the Elimination stage. Unlike the first two rounds, this time blind submissions were actually necessary for the victory — congratulations to Merkurev for pulling four of those off !

Here is the final Elimination stage scoreboard (top 5 on the left), with top 25 advancing to the finals held both online and in St Petersburg.

Also on Sunday, Open Cup 2017-18 continued its streak with the Grand Prix of Warsaw (results, top 5 on the left). SPb ITMO U 1 team demonstrated impressive form, solving all 11 problems at the moment when all other teams had at most 9. Three other teams got to 10 problems in the remaining time, but nobody could approach the first place. Congratulations to the ITMO 1 team!

Thanks for reading, and check back for more!
