He was the only one to remain unbeaten among the top three and also managed to beat both remaining podium finishers. Bharat and Bharath were placed second and third. The total prize fund of the tournament was ₹300000. The top three prizes were ₹30000, ₹20000 and ₹14000 along with a trophy each respectively.
