ITZ Group Stage Match 6 – report and results

In a pulsating finale to the group stage of the ITZ tournament, the three-man Panjim Psmartypants won the day, but it wasn't enough to prevent the Aldona Ambotik team from entering the Final of the tournament. The 50-point cushion that the North Goa team carried into the second leg was sufficient to see them through, and send the Panjim team into a Play-off that will see Rajiv D'Silva and Harsh Bhatkuly – otherwise almost unseparable as a team – up against each other.

A highlight of Match 6 was certainly the sublime venue – Arco Iris, the home of Bennita and Ganesh Subramaniam, and home venue of the South Goa Leftovers team – was the latest in the sequence of beautiful settings SEQC has managed to have quizzes in.
