India Poker Championship (IPC) is back with another edition of its popular Final Table Series (FTS). The FTS 3.0 is all set to return on Spartan Poker from September 10th, 2021 to September 19th, 2021. This third edition is bigger and bolder than the previous editions with a massive guarantee of ₹12 crore. Additionally, this season will feature 11 marquee tournaments across the 10-day long poker fest.
As we pull up our socks and eagerly wait for the upcoming FTS 3.0, let’s recall the momentous wins from the last season:
Gaurav Sood aka ‘mozzie17’ is a name you’ve heard frequently in the online poker world. The poker pro nailed the FTS 2.0 Kickoff Event during FTS 2.0 and bagged an impressive ₹14,39,250. The Gutshot January e-magazine cover star, won this ₹11,000 buy-in event by beating eight other pros on the final table.

Rohan Bhasin aka ‘The Sightseer’ had nailed the ₹40 Lakh GTD Challenger Event last FTS for ₹7,73,357. The event witnessed one of the longest final tables last season with quite a few top names playing tight on the FT.
Don’t go by his moniker ‘lol this guy,’ as this player can effortlessly bust top pros on the poker table. Arjun Pasricha had shipped the Main Event of the first season of the FTS. In the second season, Pasricha shipped the FTS 2.0 Big Game which featured a prize pool of a whopping ₹85 Lakh. He beat top pros like Goonjan Mall on the final table of this event and laughed his way to the bank with ₹16,44,750. Will Pasricha continue his winning spree in this season too? Only time will tell!

Rohit Agarwal aka ‘ToTheStreets’ is a name that many players will remember. During the past season the player beat pros like Sumit Sapra, Rubin Labroo, Ramesh Rao Thotapalli and Anant Purohit among others to win the FTS 2.0 Highroller title for a massive ₹28,49,370.
Not to forget, the FTS 2.0 Main Event Champion Siddharth Karia aka ‘Ari Tribbiani.’ The poker pro is a well-known name in the India poker circuit. After an intense heads-up, Karia lifted the Main Event title for a massive ₹32,26,143 and an 18K diamond-studded medallion.
These players showed off their exceptional skills and went on to win prestigious titles during FTS 2.0. After a successful run of the IOPC July 2021, it will be interesting to see what FTS 3.0 has in store. But one thing is certain, the series promises to be full of fireworks, intense gameplay and undefeated champions.
