Pavel Ponomarev – the 1st!

The first elimination round for Yandex.Algorithm 2014 was held on the 1st Ponomarev dominated, walking away the victory!

He elected to go for the riskiest tactic in the competition, blindly sending all his assignments to be checked (this offers the fewest penalty deductions, but each mistake is deadly) at a feverish pace. He was right on the money: they were all very well done, leaving the rest of the participants churning in his wake. There are still two elimination rounds to go, but Pavel does not have to join them, he is already guaranteed at TOP 25 finish that will land him in the final to be held in Berlin.
