The 16-year-old finished a half point ahead of a strong field which featured 14 more GMs from all over the world. He performed at 2722 and gained 18.4 Elo rating points. GM Mihail Nikitenko and GM Dmitry Bocharov scored 7.5/10 each. They were placed second and third respectively according to tie-breaks. The total prize fund of the festival was 23000000 Tenge. The top three prizes were 4000000, 3000000 and 2500000 each respectively. Aditya won approx. ₹710800. This is his second triumph of the year in Kazakhstan.

GM Aditya Mittal headed into the final round with a sole lead 7.5/9. He drew his final round game against GM Zhamsaran Tsydypov to become a clear champion. Earlier this year, Aditya won Astana Zhuldyzdary Open 2023 in July with an identical unbeaten 8/10 score and becoming a clear champion. The teenager bettered his previous triumph in Kazakhstan as he performed at 2722 which was 2668 last time. It goes without saying that Kazakhstan is really a great place for India's 77th GM.
