Meanwhile, Iglupas also claimed the 16-under category after his opponent in the finals, No. 6 seed Kenzo Marcus Brodeth, retired due to back injury.

For his twin victories, Iglupas received the Most Valuable Player award of the tournament which is part of the Palawan Pawnshop-Palawan Express Pera Padala (PPS-PEPP) junior circuit organized by Palawan Pawnshop president and CEO Bobby Castro.
