And who won it all? Phenom Erik Agard, of course. Look at his modesty on display up above, brushing off the tounament win compliments. Anyway, it's no surprise he took it, cuz Erik's crazy fast and good. And it was fantastic to see him finally win one after being demolished in last year's Lolla finals. And as tournament director Brian Cimmet points out, a lot of previous winners have gone on to make puzzles for the event. For example, last year's winner Francis Heaney made puzzle #5 in this year's package. So anyway, Erik's are some of the more creative ones out there. So here's hoping.
Good to see all of you again this weekend. And if you said hey to me for the first time, it is always nice to meet the fans.
Share the puzzle. New one on Thursday.
