Kaustuv's first tournament win of this year is New Year Open 2018. Bangladesh no.1, GM Ziaur Rahman was adjudged as the first runner up of the tournament as he missed the championship due to the earlier mentioned reason. FM Mohammad Fahad Rahman scored 7.0/9 and finished at 3rd position due to a better Tie-Break score, ahead of IM Abu Sufian Shakil and FM Uddin Md. Saif, who also scored the same points.
