Latest PL/SQL Challenge championship playoff results

We just held the 6th quarterly championship playoff at the PL/SQL Challenge. 34 players competed, answering five tough quizzes.It takes a lot to qualify for the playoff: you must rank in the top 25 over the entire quarter (and some 60 quizzes); your percentage correct must be very high; or you are selected in a wildcard process that still requires a high level of play.

You will find the results and rankings below. Congratulations to all players, of course, but let's give a special round of applause to our top three players:
  • Gary Myers (#1), who also ranked #2 in the last playoff and who wins a US$250 gift card. His first place ranking is especially impressive given the short time Gary took to answer the questions.
  • Chris Saxon (#2), who wins a US$175 gift card
  • João Barreto (#3), who wins a US$100 gift card
Good luck to everyone in the quizzes for Q3 2011 - I hope to see you in the next playoff!
