Day 4 of the FTS 2.0 series had three tournaments lined up, and just as they went underway, Tuesday’s featured tourney, the ₹40 Lakhs GTD FTS#8 Challenger final table kicked off. Starting at 6 PM, it took about two hours to play down to a winner, with Rohan ‘The Sightseer’ Bhasin eventually coming out on top to collect the ₹7.73 Lakhs winner’s paycheque.

Palash ‘palash777’ Nandwani (runner-up for ₹4.85 Lakhs), Yasheel ‘YagammiLight7’ Doddanavar (3rd for ₹3.47 Lakhs), Tarun ‘MrSweets06’ Guwalani (4th for ₹2.70 Lakhs), PokerGuru Ambassador Gokul ‘Super Kings’ (5th for ₹2.12 Lakhs), Sooraj ‘soorajtodi’ Todi (6th for ₹1.66 Lakhs), Peter ‘Sigmund’ Nazareth (7th for ₹1.24 Lakhs), and Abhijeet ‘knot_snudtke’ Kumar (8th for ₹86,242) banked the other FT payouts.

You can watch the FT replay with Sam Razavi, Muskan Sethi, and Peter Abraham commentating on the live-streamed cards-up featured table. PokerGuru Ambassador Ashish Ahuja made a guest appearance on the stream as well!

Just as the FTS#8 Challenger was playing down to a champion, the fourth featured event of the series, the ₹16,500 entry buy-in FTS#11 Big Game, kicked off. The ₹85 Lakhs GTD event happens to be the biggest guaranteed tourney in the ongoing series so far. The event registered 543 runners, overlaying ₹3.55 Lakhs, and like all previous featured FTS 2.0 events, the game was paused once the eight-handed FT was formed. As expected from an event at such a price point, the FT lineup is replete with experienced regs. Well-known MTT reg Goonjan ‘gmtesting’ Mall (3,525,107) bagged the overnight chip lead with Arjun ‘lol this guy’ Pasricha (2,777,602) set to make his second FT appearance at FTS 2,.0. Vivek ‘Pokerbatman27’ Rughani (2,016,264) was the only other player carrying forward a 2 Million+ stack to the FT.

The final table will be live-streamed across several platforms, including the PokerGuru Facebook page.

Offering the second-biggest guarantee at the FTS series on Wednesday was the ₹25 Lakhs GTD FTS#12. Unlike the FTS Challenger, an entry field of 864 entries ensured a guarantee-busting ₹25.92 Lakhs prize pool collection. The IOPC Millionaire United champion Siddhanth ‘PluRibu$’ Kripalani added the missing FTS title to his illustrious poker resume after shipping the tourney for ₹4.97 Lakhs. PokerGuru Ambassador Ankit ‘Shippament’ Wadhawan secured a runner-up score worth ₹3.12 Lakhs. Kripalani now has ₹3.10 Crores in recorded online earnings.
