Through the first three puzzles, the consensus is that Trip Payne is a minute ahead of the pack. Bob, by the way, is squarely in that pack with the top solvers.
(EDIT: Bob was actually two minutes behind Trip.)
Puzzles one through three were pretty good, with constructors Andrea Carla Michaels, Mike Shenk and Merl Reagle making early statements.
Puzzles four through six kick off at 2:30 p.m.
This is being posted without regards to what Bob may have already posted, so please bear with us if there is duplicate information.
