I introduce a permanent-based approach to the final problem of IBM Fall 2020 Quantum Challenge and prove its correctness. I describe a way to implement it as a quantum circuit and discuss the combinatorial consequences of such approach. The optimized solution obtained the score of 6574 and the 6th place in the final challenge ranking.

What could have happened if we had applied our low-level optimizations to the winning solution?
This describes techniques used to get the second place in the IBM Quantum Challenge – week 3 excercise.
I present a solution leading to a score of 6065 (4th place in the final ranking). Additionally, I tell a brief history of attempted cost-lowering strategies.
We are proud to announce that three of our employees placed among the top ten of the IBM November 2020 Quantum Challenge finals.
