A silly mistake or a clever tactic?

in case you did have the 9.9
it would've given you a reasonable chance of winning !
( subject to other goodies )

self-trumping blocked any such possibility


re self-trump,
see this ancient example

re blocking other players,
it was discussed one year ago --

    Interestingly, the referee accepted my 2 consecutive submissions.

      So, if I wanted to cheat, I could submit my best submissions,
      effectively blocking the further progress of the game.
      ( my new understanding is,
      that the penalty for consecutive-entry
      would only be assessed
      every 2nd submission )

I think in a regular game this sort of behaviour would be frowned upon! Although the rules don't forbid this.

I was trying to 'upgrade' the
9.9/1.2/1.2 = 32 submission pts
to this
9.9/9.9/8.8 = 53 submission pts + 103 EP/ED bonus pts
to gain
156 - 50 ajustment - 32 = 74 pts
i.e. 42 extra points. This did not work! Reading the previous (dobrichev) post would have saved me a failed attempt!

In game 336 qiuyanzhe had been docked -150 pts for a consecutive-entry. My 3rd consecutive entry was to test this. This did not work either!! And I went back to qiuyanzhe's submissions to find the adjustment was for a double-fault!!

So I'm now thinking whether it's possible to suffer the maximum of -250 pts of adjustments:
-50 for each invalid submission
-50 for each submission marked edited
-100 for each submission with ER/EP/ED that does not match the results of Sudoku Explainer 1.2.1
-50 for each self-trump

I think I can manage -200 pts...

Also, I've worked out a strategy for a single-player patterns game in case there is NO (zero) player submissions after 2-3 days of the game start - the submission pts would cancel out the adjustments, and a single-player should be able to achieve some 4000+ pts! Dealer pattern allowing! This remains untested!

re: penalties

Postby Pat » Tue Jan 22, 2019 12:03 pm



    i can imagine a submission "deserving" several penalties
    e.g.
      se-mismatch
      consecutive-entry
      self-trump
      not-minimal
    but we know each submission can only get one penalty
      ( which one ?
      depends on the order g.r.emlin does the various tests )


    the strange case of a submission with 2 penalties ( in the previous game )
    was achieved by editing the post

      one penalty on the original submission,
      and when that issue was fixed by editing --
      g.r.emlin assessed a new penalty
      ( and found no way to cancel the first penalty }


we also know that after a submission was penalized,
everyone is allowed to make the next submission !!

( no penalty for consecutive-entry )

    as indeed you saw in your own test

    hence in my recent post,
      my new understanding is,
      that the penalty for consecutive-entry
      would only be assessed
      every 2nd submission
