The Ultimate Big Game of FTS 3.0 has come to a glorious end after an action-packed and intense final table (FT). The FT was indeed a star-studded affair. It included some accomplished names such as IOPC July 2021 Legends winner Amit Gehani, Abhijeet Kumar , IOPC January 2021 Main Event winner Laksh Pal Singh, online regs Vinayak Bajaj, Vishnu Khandelwal and Arun Sriram alongside Aman Kumar Sharma and Arunkumar Singh battling it out for a lion’s share of the humongous ₹80 Lakh prize pool.
After an intense heads-up between Abhijeet Kumar aka ‘TheSupremeOne’ and Aman Kumar Sharma aka ‘KarrAk’, it was Sharma who gloriously lifted the title for a massive ₹15,59,200. He started off with the fourth-highest stack of 31 BB but played exceptionally well by beating some of the best in the names in the poker world.
The first player to leave the FT was Arun Sriram aka ‘vazharmorghulis.’ The Chennai-based player who started off with 16 BB was busted by Vinayak Bajaj aka ‘haayegarmi’ at the eighth spot for ₹1,95,200.
The next casualty was Vishnu Khandelwal aka ‘violator.’ Khanelwal started off with the second-lowest stack and hence it wasn’t surprising to see him leave at the seventh spot for ₹2,65,600.
Arunkumar Singh aka ‘denoi’ succumbed at the sixth spot for ₹3,61,600. Singh started off at the FT as the second-highest chip-leader with a handsome 41 BB.

Bajaj was the next to depart for ₹4,73,600. The 28-year old, who started off with 17 BB today was busted at the fifth spot, the same place as he started off.
IOPC January 2021 Main Event winner, Laksh Pal Singh finished fourth for ₹6,00,800. Singh put up an impressive gameplay on the FT today as he started off with the lowest stack but steadily climbed his way up to the fourth place.
IOPC July 2021 Legends winner Amit Gehani aka ‘kavipri’, who started as the chip leader with 51BB couldn’t continue his dominance and got busted at the second runner-up spot for ₹7,42,400, leaving Kumar and Sharma to battle it out.
Poker pro, Abhijeet Kumar had to walk away at the runner-up spot for ₹9,90,400. The 28-year-old came on to the FT with the most poker experience of six years and the third-highest stack of 32 BB. He gave Sharma a tough competition, however, finally it was Sharma who lifted the title.
