Hi everyone.

CodeChef will be hosting the 5th Lockout Competition tomorrow, immediately after the end of SnackDown Round 1A. Lockout is an intense and fast-paced coding competition between two top competitive programmers, incorporating an esports kind of feeling in competitive programming.

This lockout match will be between 2 top coders, who were also (respectively) the winner and the host of the 2020 Lockout Championship:

  • Alex Danilyuk (Um_nik) — a 7* coder on CodeChef with a peak rating of 3567 on Codeforces. He is the ICPC 2020 World Champion, and also the head CodeChef admin.
  • Jay Leeds (Geothermal) — a 7* coder on CodeChef with a peak rating of a 2927 on Codeforces. He was a bronze medalist in the ICPC 2020 Invitational Contest, and also the Facebook HackerCup Finalist in 2020.

Lockout Details:

Lockout Rules:

  • There will be 6 problems, with scoring distribution: 101, 202, 304, 408, 516, 632.
  • If a participant solves a problem first, then his opponent cannot gain the score for that problem.
  • The player with the higher score at the end wins.
