According to Allsportspk’s reliable sources, the controversy ignited when after the end of Round 3 play, an opponent player complained against the leading player having used the Slope reading function of the gadget he was carrying. Upon this the event organizing team investigated the issue. Accordingly, the leading player explained that he had given his device to the complainant upon his request, and it was him i.e. the opponent who had switched on the function. After due deliberation based on ‘Benefit of Doubt’ basis, the allegation was considered unacceptable. Thereby, the Final Round play would continue on Sunday based on the the Round 3 results.
