The other day, I was curious about this thing and couldn't find a similar older question so.. decided to post this.

I do not know much beyond the basic algorithms 101 knowledge. Probably the only stuff I know outside of that is Heavy-Light decomposition and Persistent Segment tree. My favorite problems are those which are hard but solvable with just the basic 101 knowledge.

I am curious if there are grandmasters who have the same level of knowledge that I do and not more. While knowing more algorithms/data structures may surely help, it's interesting for me to see high rated performers who got there with just the basic algorithms 101 knowledge.

Thanks!

What is 101?

    Usually the first algorithms course in undergraduation is called 101 to denote it's the most basic course in that subject. (102 for advanced and so on..)
