Pinstorm at the BQC

Pinstorm isn't just where BQC quizzes are held, they also provide some of its star quizzers. Mahesh Murthy, their big boss, took part in his second BQC quiz this season a few hours ago, and notched up his second win. In the process his teammate and Pinstorm colleague, Ashwan Lewis, shot to the top of the BQC League standings. At this rate, the Pinstorm boys will own this place in more ways than one!

Arvind Krishnaswamy and Tanmay Sharma conducted the quiz, in which 31 quizzers, spread across eight teams, took part. Mahesh's team, in which he was accompanied by Ashwan, Anand Sivasankar and Aravinda Talluri, dominated from start to finish, and won by a massive margin.
