Jan Mrozowski (yahn mer-ZAHV'-skee) of Poland was among the 120 players from 32 countries in this year's competition. The 23-year-old defended his 2009 title by solving 10 puzzles in a playoff round in a time of 54 minutes 4 seconds.

Germany had the highest score in the team division with 7,904 points.

The two-day competition that ended Saturday in Philadelphia marked the first time the event has been held in the United States. The World Puzzle Federation and The Philadelphia Inquirer hosted it.
