“It is all about quality not quantity” at Pune observed quizmaster Pickbrain as he commenced proceedings in a city known to produce teams that can do the distance and win even the national rounds as they had in the past. His observation was true and it also meant that the questions were a notch higher and teams were challenged in the prelim that led to the six finalists.

FINALISTS

  • Symbiosis Law School : Sriram G and Nikhil Joy
  • Singhad College of Engg : Aniketh R and Yash S
  • SCMHRD : Naman Gupta and Tanmay Rastogi
  • Symbiosis Centre of Management Studies : Ruchit V and Paras Rishi
  • Symbiosis Inst of Media and Communication (SIMC) : Arjun Krishna and Ashish Vasvani
  • SCMHRD : Kumar and Kathik

The final saw all teams scoring in the first couple of rounds as the battle seemed to only get tighter with each passing question and round. The fast paced final had a fantastic mix of posers from various industries that tested the teams.

The buzzer rounds of the quiz helped Singhad and SIMC score a few more than the other teams and in the rounds that followed it looked like a two way battle but the others came back soon to close in.

In the final round all teams had a chance to make it but the duo of Arjun and Ashish held their own to score in small bursts of 5 points but played the game well to ensure they got the better of Singhad and the others to qualify for the Western zonals as Pune champs.

The GM of Taj Vivanta Pune, Mr.Mahipal Singh congratulated the teams and gave away the prizes.
