The exam season was way behind us when we arrived at the March LunchTime 2017. The schools were closing their gates and the books were finding their way in the back of the closets. It was time for some fun and games. With enthusiasm levels touching the roofs, we sat down for a fun filled Saturday evening for LTIME46 with Kamil Debowski, Hasan Jaddouh, and Sergey Kulik on the problem setting panel.
With those experienced hands handling the contest, there wasn’t much left for us, but to sit back and enjoy the contest. But with so much action happening on the rank table it was really hard to be relaxed. The contest opened to a WA of kmcode on BRLADDER, which normally is not something you associate with kmcode, but then, the problem wasn’t all that easy per se. His WA was followed by four others on the same problem before swastik1996 cracked it. It didn’t take long for kmcode too to crack it as he bagged it in his third attempt. He was soon joined by sa1378 and liujunhao, bagged their first problem in the first attempt only. And with that the race to the top had started.
Now, while liujunhao and kmcode were not new to the LunchTime programming series, it was a debut for sa1378. And we must say, quite an impressive debut it was. He bagged his first three problems fully solved in the first attempt with full 100 points and it took him a tad over an hour to do so. It was now, down to the one question for him to grab his first LunchTime, however, it was not going to be easy; it never is when it’s down to one question. But he wasn’t the only one struggling with ALMROW; almost everyone found it hard to find their way around it. But ultimately no one could. Ok, to be precise, no one from the schools could. So, who emerged atop the rank table you ask? Well, let us take you to the rank tables.
