September 22, 2017 Announcing the TCO17 Algorithm Finalists!

Unarguably the most interesting contest at the TCO Finals has always been the Algorithm Finals. The algorithm track brings the best mathematics and programming enthusiasts in the world to compete onsite at one place.
The battle to the championship becomes more intense after each round. The arena starts having more red color as the tournament progresses.
It starts with Round 1 – 1A, 1B and 1C. They are held on 3 different days to suit the members to compete and make it to the next round. If members miss out on Round 1A, they can participate in Round 1B or Round 1C. Top 250 rated members are given byes who meet the tournament eligibility criteria have earn an automatic berth, or bye for the Algorithm Competition. This means they can skip Round 1 and they automatically qualify for round 2.
In the next round Round 2 the difficulty level slightly enters into Div I difficulty level and the competition becomes more intense. 40 members each from Round 2A, 2B and 2C proceed to the last online round – Round 3.
Round 3 is the one that decides the majority of the finalists.
