A tight result in Arvind and Kartik's quiz

Arvind Krishnaswamy and Kartik Srivatsa conducted an excellent quiz at the Pinstorm office in Bandra last Sunday, which was decided on the last question. It was superbly tight until the end, and with one theme question to go, split up into three connects with four visuals each, two teams were tied on 13 points, with another team lurking behind on 12, and another on 11. There was a four-pointer bonanza at stake, and Sumant Srivathsan's team duly picked that up to catapult from third to first, with 16 points. Terrific excitement.

1st with 16 points
Sumanth Srivathsan
