Finally there has been a change in the standings in Al Zimmerman's Magic Square Contest. As predicted in the April 12 Blog, the Germans are favored to do well in this contest.

The Germans are now one-two with Hermann Jurksch leading and Walter Trump trailing by only 0.004 points. Walter Trump is the favorite to win as he is one of the pioneers of Retention Magic Squares, a brilliant concept of combinatory mathematics.
