Today the high-velocity action on the virtual felts of the Final Table Series 3.0 (FTS 3.0) continued. The final table for the Monster Stack event was set with Vaibhav Sharma bagging the chip lead position. Ultimately, it was Sharma who went on to grab the title spot. Here’s a quick recap of the final table action.
The battle heated up immediately with all eight players ready to fight for the winning title. International poker players Kevin MacPhee and Sam Razavi joined host Peter Abraham along with Richard Haridasoham as commentators for the livestream. With plenty of pros on the FT, the action was played out in a spectacular fashion.
The first casualty of the night was Shagun Jain aka ‘icansuckout’ who entered the FT with a sixth-highest chip lead and 20 odd BB. Jain busted out in the eighth position for ₹1,36,800 after being knocked out by Brijesh Pratap Rao.
Following him was Meherzad Munsaf aka ‘goblue’ who started at the bottom of the list with the least amount of chips. Munsaf has a long list of achievements like shipping the DPT Colossus 50k Warm Up for 10.8 Lakh in May 2019. However, he wasn’t able to keep up and finished seventh for the prize money of ₹1,92,600.
Poker pro Anurag Srivastava aka ‘CultOfPersonality’ was the next to go. With 13 BB, Srivastava tried his best to last longer on the FT. But a knockout by Aniket Waghmare left him chip-less. He busted in the sixth position and walked away with ₹2,56,200.
Entering the table with a stack of 17,78,897 chips, Suraj Todi aka ‘GotNoChange31’ was the fourth player to exit the FT. He previously finished in the fourth position in the IOPC United on Spartan Poker, however, this time he finished in the fifth position for ₹3,27,000.

The three-way battle for the top began with Aniket Waghmare aka ‘TakingSouls’ leading with the biggest stack. Eventually, the next player to bust out was Brijesh Pratap Rao aka ‘Sanu15’ in third place. While not much is known about Rao, his third-place finish on the FT for ₹5,25,000 is a commendable feat.
Down to just two, the heads up battle between Aniket Waghmare and Vaibhav Sharma aka ‘Beautiful Mistakes’ kept viewers on the edge of their seats. With every passing hand, the dynamics of the game kept changing with either of the two taking the lead. Finally, both the players struck a deal and Vaibhav Sharma found himself on the winner’s seat for ₹9,78,529. Waghmare finished in the runner up position for ₹9,14,470.
