The Final Table Series (FTS) is one of the biggest tournament series that is hosted twice a year by India Poker Championship. The sixth day of the series saw some intense action. The ₹8o Lakh FTS Big Game started at 8 PM yesterday and had some high-level action. With 440 entries in total, the final table of the Big Game saw big names from the industry sweat it out.
India Online Poker Championship (IOPC ) Legends star Amit Gehani aka ‘Kavipri’, led the way. This 41-year-old from Jaipur fired five bullets to become the chip lead in this FTS Big Game event. Leading with a chip stack of 25,71,911, Gehani has 51 BB to prove his mettle. Following the Legends player was Arunkumar Singh aka ‘denoi’, who is a Spartan Poker reg. This player has a chip stack of 20,44,712 and has only ten BB less than Gehani.
The player with the third highest chip stack is Abhijeet Kumar aka ‘TheSupremeOne.’ Kumar, a staple name during the IOPC July series, has ₹1.06 Crore in online cashes. Kumar has 16,10,517 chips in hand and this 26 year young gun from Patna has 32 odd BB to crack it in this event. The next player with the fourth highest chip stack is Aman Kumar Sharma aka ‘KarrAk’ who has just one BB lesser than Kumar, i.e. a chip stack of 15,38,673.
Following Sharma is poker pro Vinayak Bajaj aka ‘haayegarmi’ with 17 BB to battle in this Big Game event. This 28-year-old player from Ranchi finished third in the Millionaire United (May 2020) on Spartan Poker, cashed in the WSOP Main Event (August 2020) at the 500th place and is surely expected to intensify the action.
