Although there was a three-way tie for the second place among S.K. Rafick, Tapash Sardar and Sen, it was Sen who sealed the runner-up position as he shot better on the back nine holes on day two. Mitra triumphed in the Mid-Amateur category, followed by Rafick on 148. Mitra was exceptional during the tournament and has made it a habit of winning both categories, having done so for the second time on the trot.
