What a day this has been for poker fans! The festivities extended to the online poker felts of the Final Table Series (FTS) 3.0. It was an absolute banger of a final table (FT)! The fireworks had everyone at the edge of their seats. The FT started off with eight players chasing one another at this bounty tournament for the ultimate ₹40 Lakh guarantee. If you missed the intense action, we’re here to give you a quick recap.
Leading the FT with the highest stack was online pro Sahil Chutani aka ‘$lim$hady19’ sitting atop the rest with 11,29,183 chips. However, the second chip leader at the start of the FT Chandan Arora aka ‘Flow Like Water’ was stubborn and didn’t give up that easily. It was a swingy heads-up session where the lead exchanged sides a few times and eventually, Arora bagged the title for a prize of ₹5,65,762, with additional prizes for bounties captured through the tournament.
The first player to bid adieu at the FT was M Balakrishnan aka ‘LACHANCE.’ It was not very surprising to see Balakrishnan leave first since he started off with the lowest stack of 377,007 chips. The player finished eighth for ₹69,817. He also secured four bounties worth ₹21,875.
Online reg Ankit Wadhawan aka ‘Shippament’ who had the third-lowest stack at the start of the FT couldn’t sustain long to ladder up. He finished at the seventh spot for ₹95,497, claiming four bounties along the way worth ₹30,937.
Next in line was another online reg, Mithun Mahesh aka ‘Zima Blue.’ It was surprising to see Mahesh run out of chips so soon since he started with the third-highest stack. He departed at the sixth place for ₹1,30,807. Mahesh also scored two bounties worth ₹5,000.
The next player to exhaust his stack was Vikranth Varma aka ‘borntrouble.’ It’s safe to say Varma did create some trouble at the FT by starting off with the second-lowest stack and still surviving until the fifth spot. He cashed a fair ₹1,72,270 in prize money while gaining an impressive five bounties worth ₹24,687.
Mohit Gupta aka ’monuguru’ put up a decent gameplay. Gupta, who resumed the FT today with the fourth-largest stack, departed at the same spot. He pocketed ₹2,17,745 from his fourth-place finish. Additionally, he took home ₹49,531 by securing four bounties.
