Three players - Soram Rahul Singh, Bhogen R K Singh and the top seed Y Dhanabir Singh scored 8/10 each. They were placed second to fourth respectively according to tie-breaks. Sanjoy defeated Soram and drew with Bhogen. The total prize fund of the tournament was ₹280000. The top three prizes were ₹35000, ₹25000 and ₹18000 along with a trophy each. This is Sanjoy's first-ever tournament triumph. He has played only seven rating tournaments in his career before this victory. He finished second at the last event he played in 2021 at Nagaon.

53-year-old Bhogen R K Singh impresses

Only three players remained undefeated among the top ten finishers. The champion, Khumukcham Sanjoy Singh, second runner-up Bhogen R K Singh and fifth place finisher Brijit Chetia. Bhogen's performance is really impressive considering, he is the only veteran at the age of 53 years, to make a top ten finish. 11-year-old Abhirup Saikia is the youngest among the top ten finishers. He scored 7.5/10 to secure tenth place.
