The presence of “tacky” spots indicates to me that the some of the previous finish was not removed completely and the new stain is setting on top instead of soaking in.

If it were mine I would clean those spots with a solvent (probably mineral spirits) until it wasn’t tacky any more. Then re-sand those areas and test to see if the stain soaks in. Now you have the challenge of trying to stain those areas and make it match and blend with the rest of the top. Too Luck.
If that doesn’t work you start over on the whole top.
