The next round will take place this Sunday according to the usual schedule. We apologize to Diomidov and the team of Rusanivsky Lyceum, who were unable to breed this tour and putnam's student olympiad.
About the 4th round
Now there is a new problem with the date of the 4th round. We really hoped that the full-time tour of the Internet Olympiad would take place later, but in vain. Our participants do not have time to take part in the fighting and asked for the disengagement of battles. Here are these participants (if I correctly discharged them all):
Kivva Yaroslav Kyiv-Pechersk Lyceum No171 "Leader" 9
Gunko Oleksandr Gymnasium No178 9
Chudakov Timofey Gimnazia No 178 9
Nguyen Chung Kyiv-Pechersk Lyceum No 171 "Leader 9
Khotyantseva Natalia Lyceum No171 "Leader" 10
Alyokhina Anastasia Kyiv-Pechersk Lyceum No 171 "Leader" 10
Andriy Oslyansky Kyiv-Pechersk Lyceum No. 171 "Leader" 10
Yakovlev Ivan Kyiv-Pechersk Lyceum No171 "Leader" 10
Meentyeva Ada Lyceum No171 "Leader" 10
Tsintseus Gleb Kyiv-Pechersk Lyceum No. 171 "Leader" 11
Gavrilko Yevhenii Gymnasium No178 11
Krashtan Tamila Polytechnic Lyceum NTUU "KPI" 11
As you can see, 2 teams from the middle league and 4 teams from the senior league are involved at the same time. There are several options for resolving this situation.
1) Playing teams in weakened syllables is perhaps the worst option, because in fact we will have games for the final allocation of places, such as finals;
2) Postpone the fights, where our participants are involved on December 15 (or December 31) – here the disadvantage is that then these participants will not have a single full weekend at all, and the organizers will have to make an additional battle, that in the conditions of this year, when this has already happened, an emergency overload;
3) postpone this battle to the end of the winter holidays (for example, the last Sunday of the January holidays);
4) postpone the battle to the beginning of March.
Of all the possible options, the most suitable, as for me, is the 3rd. The City Olympiad is scheduled (as far as I can remember) for January 26, and this fight can be a good training on the eve of this important event. I wrote about the shortcomings of the first two. As for the shortcomings of the 4th option – already too 4th round is separated from the tournament itself, the connection with the previous rounds is lost.
But all options have the right to exist, and therefore I ask teachers to think about which one we will stop at. This is the most important issue of our meeting at 12.30.
About the 3rd round
There was one nuance. In the middle league in Group B, according to the rules in the 4th round, the finals between the teams that took 1-2 and 3-4 places in the group tournament should take place. We hoped that these teams would be determined at the end of the 3rd round. But they have decided now. Therefore, formally the 3rd round for these 4 teams does not solve anything. In order for the games in the 3rd round to become content, I suggest that the final start already from the 3rd round. That is, the overall result will consist of the total result of two fights.
I ask all interested participants to speak out about this.
If the majority agrees with such an offer, then these fights must take place before considering the last task, so that the total score is the sum of two fights.
If the majority does not agree with such a proposal, then offer alternatives to give the content of the battle.
