This weekend, the 25 finalists battled it out for over $40,000 in cash prizes, and the title of Hacker Cup Champion. The top 8 finalists all solved 5 out of 6 problems, but in the end Gennady Korotkevich (tourist) became the first 4-time champion with a combined time penalty of just over 6 hours, almost a full hour ahead of 2nd place.

You can see the full scoreboard reveal and interview with Gennady here:

Gennady was... the first to solve Problem A 11 minutes into the contest, and from there he held onto his lead for the entire contest except for a 40-minute gap towards the end. Gennady was also the first to solve Problem B (32 minutes) and Problem C (55 minutes). Ildar Gainullin (iq300) solved Problem D first at 81 minutes, Daniel Rutschmann (dacin21) solved Problem E first at 131 minutes, and Riku Kawasaki (maroonrk) was the only finalist to solve Problem F at 202 minutes.

Here are the top 5 finalists:

1st ($20,000): Gennady Korotkevich (tourist)

3rd ($5,000): Andrew He (ecnerwala)
