Here I want to provide Markus's post from previous contest:

"As in all contests, some guys tend to ruin the contest by
obfuscating their code, as DrSeuss does at the moment. 

In the contest rules under "Hacking" we read "we ask that
you not abuse the system." I think this should also be valid
for the annoying obfuscation of code.

In the current leading code, I still find large portions of
my twilight winning code. I insist that you at least do not
obfuscate code that others have written!! If you want
introduce a new variable, call it as you like, but leave the
others as they are!
