Indore – SP Jain wins Indore leg

SP Jain wins Indore leg
“Incredible Debut” was how Pickbrain described the Indore edition of Campus Crucible 08 and those who were at the event seem to second that view in totality.

The city of Indore was witnessing the event for the first time and the turnout was huge with close to 180 teams taking the prelim. The scores in the prelim were high and Pickbrain chose to do two rounds of wild cards.

The teams from IIM Indore dominated both the wild card round and created history of sorts by becoming the first institute in India at Crucible to win both the wild card rounds.

The final line up comprised

  • IMS DAVV Indore – Huzefa and Deepika
  • IIPS DAVV Indore – Anshuman and Rohit
  • IIM Indore – Rajat and Nishanth
  • SP Jain – Mumbai – Vijay and Siddharth
  • IIM Indore – Kaushik and Sarosij Roy
  • IIM Indore – Mainak and Shambudha

The final was a very close contest with teams scoring points at regular intervals. The tension was kept alive by quizmaster Pickbrain who allowed the teams to think a little more than he normally would as it was a first time city.

The quiz ended in a tie between the team from IIM Indore (Rajat and Nishanth) and SP Jain, Mumbai. (For the curious: The team from SP Jain had missed the Mumbai round and had obtained prior permission to take part at Indore). In the end, SP Jain won the quiz by a whisker getting the tiebreaker question right.

At the end of the day, the crowd was so happy with the quiz, there were people who wanted the quiz to be held twice!. There were a few who even wanted passes to the national final at Mumbai. Impressed we are and we want more seemed to be the message from Indore.

Results

  • Winner: SP Jain – Mumbai – Vijay and Siddharth
  • Runner Up: IIM Indore – Rajat and Nishanth
