A forethought week

The Apr 15 - Apr 21 week was quite busy. TopCoder SRM 755 kicked things off on Monday (problems, results, top 5 on the left, analysis). The problems were quite straightforward, therefore the coding speed and the challenge phase came to the forefront. Tourist did very well on both, and got a well-deserved first place. Congratulations!

TopCoder hosted a second round this week, the TCO 2019 Round 1A (problems, results, top 5 on the left, analysis). Most high-rated contestants got a bye to Round 2, therefore it was a chance to see some new names on the scoreboard. Congratulations to mrho888 on the great challenge phase performance and the win!

Codeforces ran the Elimination Round for the Forethought Future Cup right after the TCO round (problems, results, top 5 on the left, analysis). There were eight problems and therefore the round was slightly longer at 2:30, but this did not stop tourist from solving everything in just over an hour. Well done!

Finally, the Open Cup 2018-19 returned with the Grand Prix of Baltic Sea on Sunday (results, top 5 on the left). The team Gifted Infants solved 10 problems in just under three hours and nothing in the remaining two, and yet nobody could catch them. Congratulations on the victory!

Thanks for reading, and check back for more!
