Manish Lakhotia has proved that consistency pays as he completes an impressive five consecutive weeks at the top of the annual leaderboard standings. The two-time Millionaire champion had worked up ₹12.78 Lakhs in total winnings last week, creating a distance of over ₹30 Lakhs between himself and the #2 ranked Gaurav Sood. He added another ₹8.22 Lakhs to his tally over the past seven days, including winning an IOPC title on Monday, one of the nine FT scores he posted through the week. Lakhotia is still the only player with over ₹2.50 Crores in recorded winnings this year.

Young Gun Gaurav Sood and PokerGuru Ambassador Laksh Pal Singh also retain their top three berths in the annual rankings. On the flip side, Lakhotia is yet to hit the ₹1 Crore milestone in yearly profits. The former IOPC – The Crown champion Laksh Pal Singh continues to hold the title of being the most profitable player of the year with ₹1.27 Crore in net profits.

Making his way to the top of both the weekly and monthly charts is Arun Sriram, who won two titles this week, starting with PokerStars India’s Sunday Highroller PKO on Sunday. That was just the start, and Sriram stormed his way to the top of the charts after taking down the Adda52 Big Game on Thursday for a career-best ₹14 Lakhs. Sriram’s weekly earnings ran into ₹19.32 Lakhs, including ₹15.61 Lakhs in net profits.

The former professional water polo player Harshad Barve hit the Monday headlines after taking down the first of the six IOPC marquee events, the ₹1 Crore GTD Blaze of Glory, for a personal-best ₹16.98 Lakhs. The seven-figure score landed him the #2 position on the weekly leaderboard. Rounding out the top three is poker coach Abhishek Goindi who was the first player to win two IOPC titles at the ongoing series. He topped the Sunday charts after taking down the IOPC #2 Sunday Prime and went ahead to win the IOPC #26 a few days later. Goindi enters the weekend with ₹16.20 Lakhs in weekly winnings, complemented by an impressive ₹11.40 Lakhs in net profits.

Arun Sriram’s Adda52 Big Game win was enough to catapult him to the top of the July charts, where he reigns with ₹25 Lakhs in recorded winnings. PokerGuru Ambassador Mithun Mahesh and the IOPC Blaze of Glory champion Harshad Barve sit at #2 and #3 on the monthly standings, respectively.
