Shahar Shoshan and Lotan Giladi’s team took home the top prize after their team defeated a team on which the third Israeli, Guy Iloz, was placed.

The trio stayed in Riyadh for eight days for the tournament after having entered Saudi Arabia on Israeli passports and receiving visas from local authorities.
