A short biography
My name is Gabriele Simionato and when I remember it I have always been a puzzle enthusiast. Friends challenged me with all sorts of riddles or logical questions, and this encouraged a penchant for math. I first solved sudoku in 2005. It was love at first sight, so I decided to compete in the Italian Sudoku game and earn third place. Since then, I have competed in a dozen different puzzles – the Sudoku World Championship, and the results have improved a lot. I met sudoku passionately and had the opportunity to learn many loose tips from the best players in the world. I bring the same passion to my heart, share it with people who read my e-books and enjoy solving the games I make. I love inventing new techniques and tricks to solve online Sudoku puzzle and adding them to my games to create a new challenge every time.
SENEC – Slovakia
The 11th Sudoku World Cup was held in western Slovakia, and guess what? – The previous year, the three pallet players were the same on the pallet in 2016. And the same was the three best teams. Only their positions were changed, indicating that Sudoku is a skill game and not luck.
The individual competition lasted for 3 days and more than 200 players from 24 countries struggled to recognize the world’s fastest losers. We are now excited to celebrate Estonian Tiit Vunk as the new champion: In the final round, he managed to take over the Czech and Japanese finalists and took his first ever gold medal after two consecutive silver medals in 2015 and 2014.
In the team competition, the Czech players left the reigning champions of China and Japan and won a new gold medal after the first in 2008. China confirmed the silver medal the year before. (Quick trivia: Based on the information so far, which medal did Japan win in 2015?)
Despite competition in Europe, six of the top ten athletes came from China, Japan or Korea in response to the growing demand for sudoku competitions from Asian players. In fact, Asia is the venue for the upcoming event: the 2017 Sudoku World Cup will be held in Bangalore, India.
Do you want to be a part of it and challenge the best players from all over the world? You’re welcome! Just contact your country’s federation to find out how you can be part of the team.
