The tournament was divided into three categories of student, senior citizen and open. Ten winners from each category competed at the final tournament.

More than 300 people registered for the competition. It was held at a shopping mall complex in the suburb, and a large number of crowds joined as spectators and shared the excitement. This year, attractive prizes from eight sponsors ranged from gift certificates to air conditioner and washing machine. McDonalds gave away free coffee coupons to all the participants.

Nikoli's 150 puzzle books were sold out in two hours. Maki was busy signing the autograph. "It is great to meet the Sudoku fans in Malaysia. I had a great time even though I had no time for smoking," he said.
