In this feature, we bring you to the top three weekly, monthly, and yearly performers every Saturday. These rankings are based on cumulative winnings (cashes). However, the rankings only include players registered to our online ranking system, so if you haven’t signed up on PokerGuru yet, hurry up and register!

In January, Armaan Kochhar had missed winning the IPC 15K Head Hunter by whiskers, eventually finishing runner-up. Kochhar had admitted then that he, like many other pros, had to face scathing opposition from his family for his love of poker. If the Dubai-based player had displayed a spark of brilliance then, he has really come into his own this month. He was the third-biggest winner last week, but he went into overdrive this week to come out as the week`s top scorer with over ₹21 Lakhs in earnings! In all, Kochhar has won 19 titles through October and is placed second on the monthly leaderboard as well.

Banmanlang Warr Lyndem and PokerGuru Ambassador Naresh Veeravalli trail Kochhar in the weekly rankings.

Dominating both the monthly and the annual charts is someone who has become a permanent fixture on the top of our leaderboard rankings – Young Gun Gaurav Sood. For someone who has had a breakout year, October has turned out to particularly exceptional. A testament to this is the fact that Sood has already accumulated a whopping ₹47.73 Lakhs this month, of which ₹32.75 Lakhs are his profits! He added ₹6.60 Lakhs to his tally this week to retain his lead in the October standing.

At the same time, Sood has kept his sails high in the yearly leaderboard for an unbelievable 24th week!

Young Gun Arsh Grover who is also second on the monthly leaderboard – and Srihari Bang retain their second and third spots in the annual rankings as well!
