when I prepared long long ago some submissions for the game, I selected patterns of the data base of potential hardest with more clues that in the games played.
As far as I remember, I took only patterns with a known 11.x , with various numbers of known puzzles.
In the 20-22 field, so many work has been done that the chances to find new 11.x are very small.
I intend to update the database with old generations mainly in the 25-26 clues field.

BTW this pattern should pass the 80 entries if it has been deeply searched in the 45-62 area

21 of them have a serate rating (9 of them have a serate rating >=11.0 - they cover 11.1, 11.3, 11.4 and 11.5)

Interesting !
How can you verify this so quickly ?
Do you have a way to put these puzzles in the good form for the game ?

I wonder if we have found something new with this game or just "isomorph" of already known puzzles :|

Hi papy999,
I wanted to explore the domain of highest rated sudoku. So I got the last compilation of champagne on google drive. I put all these in a mysql database, with additional information like pattern, minlexpattern, minlex of the puzzle, clues number, etc...

My first question was about the Pattern Game : what was the contribution of PG to this Potential Hardest list : answer is : a very small number ... and are they high rated puzzles from last games (2 last years) not in the list : answer : very few !

Second question was : are there interesting pattern for the pattern game ? answer : yes many puzzles in the list have pattern that have an symetrical isomorph ... and some with several puzzles 11.x ! I found 112 distinct patterns (non isomorph) each one having at least 1 puzzle rated 11.x (serate or skfr) and more than 50 have not been used in Pattern Game ... I have to submit some more to g.r.emlin (i've already proposed one 26 clues !)

This means that I can use the power of SQL to find needles in this database.

No i've no solution for that now !
I guess that I can write a piece of code that try every permutation of column and line and verify if the result is compliant with the pattern, this means at most 3 359 232 tries... it should take less than 1s to get the puzzle.

And after the puzzle should be rerated by serate !

But this seems like "cheating" to find high rated puzzles...

By the way : what seems interesting to me is :
- Do we have found new puzzles that are not in the DB ?
- Do we have found all the puzzles that are already in the DB ? if not we didn't search well !

And I can answer to these 2 questions with the canonical forms : minlex puzzle and minlex pattern !

Best regards !
Patrice

I had a look at my old file
Code: Select all
98.7.....7.....9....2.95...47........3.4..7....6....1....84.3.......6.5......2..1 ED=11.7/11.7/2.6

Edit - ignore - champagne has already added the puzzle .... :oops:
