It`s a sizzling hot summer for Indian poker players who are neck-deep in arguably the busiest season of online MTTs across the domestic sites ever!

As we have been doing for almost four months now, we begin the report with an update on the online exploits of Young Gun Anuj Yadav, who closed out his 15th consecutive week as the #1 ranked MTT player in the country, and he did so it style. The winningest player of the year, Anuj Yadav, made away with a thumping ₹27.71 Lakhs across his weekly run and looks poised to repeat Young Gun Gaurav Sood`s feat from the last two years. Yadav went on a tear last Sunday, finishing runner-up to Aniket Waghmare in Spartan Poker`s IOPC #28 – Blaze for ₹19.26 Lakhs while going the distance in IOPC #29 – D’Lite to collect another ₹4.04 Lakhs – enough to take the #2 spot in the weekly & monthly rankings.

The #2 ranked Arsh Grover continues to trail Yadav in the annual rankings, and the Young Gun`s best finish this week was the ₹3.35 Lakhs he won in Spartan Poker`s IOPC #36 – Monday Spotlight for his career-second IOPC title. Grover sits with ₹2.08 Crores in annual winnings.

Like before, Ashish Ahuja takes the #3 spot in the annual rankings. The PokerGuru Ambassador featured prominently among Sunday`s standout winners as he won MPL Poker`s inaugural IPF Main Event for ₹17 Lakhs. Ahuja added ₹23.96 Lakhs this week, putting himself at least an arm`s length away from Mohammad Azhar`s aggressive advances.

Aniket Waghmare grabbed pole position in the weekly & monthly standings with a leaderboard topping ₹39.79 Lakhs in weekly winnings. The first-ever IOPC MASTERMIND won Spartan Poker`s ₹1.50 Crores GTD IOPC #28 – Blaze for ₹31.23 Lakhs, picking up his fifth IOPC title. He posted a third-place finish in the IOPC #56- Thursday Prime four days later for ₹3.55 Lakhs, accumulating ₹46.78 Lakhs in monthly winnings.

Young Gun Anuj Yadav and Spartan Poker`s IOPC #65 – Friday Spotlight winner Anurag Srivastava have worked their way up to #2 and #3 in the monthly rankings.

Like the monthly charts, Aniket Waghmare and Anuj Yadav occupied the top two positions in the weekly standings. Thursday’s IOPC #57 – High Roller champion Deepak Raina makes his debut in this weekly column, ranked #3 in the weekly standings.
