The two leading pairs, Kosti Salonen & Gustav Björnberg and Oskari Vihervaara & Riku Pennanen, ended up in tied total score after 24 rounds of Finnish Eternite Marathon in Rahola, Tampere, on 4 – 5 February 2012. Kosti and Gustav won the sudden death at 5th play-off lane, and renewed their victory of this tournament from last year.

Kosti Salonen has won this international competition 5 years in a row, with three different playing partners: with Gustav Björnberg 2011 - 2012, with Riku Pennanen 2008 & 2010, and with Ari Åman 2009.

Some handicap points were given to players of lower skill categories.

Individually the best players of the competition were 1. Kosti Salonen (average 21.33), 2. Oskari Vihervaava (avg 21.58) and 3. Riku Pennanen (avg 21.83).

What a thriller! Me and and few others said we'd have gladly paid few euros for those ring-side tickets! Riku pulled off a fantastic attack but missed the match point and Kosti got his at that moment quite red head under control just in time after two misses on 16 and 17 and took it to the playoff and went all the way.
