With the Puja and Dusshera festivities past us, it’s time to look ahead at a fire-cracking Diwali just a fortnight away. Keeping the festive spirit going for the poker community are MPL Poker’s Diwali Lakhpati Party and PokerDangal’s Diwali Poker Festival, with the just-started Spartan Poker’s Diwali Celebration Series adding to the fireworks.

Young Gun Anuj Yadav (annual winnings – ₹3.46 Crores) is fast closing in on setting a new record as he completes his 32nd consecutive week on top of the yearly charts today! The MTT pro added a hefty ₹8.14 Lakhs this past week and got to work early by taking down PokerBaazi’s BSS SuperStack last Sunday for ₹6.51 Lakhs.

The competition at the top of the POY race is almost neck-to-neck, for Young Gun Sahil Chutani (annual winnings – ₹3.33 Crores) is not too far behind. Chutani was active only last weekend and won Spartan Poker’s ITM #62 Sunday Supersonic for ₹9.02 Lakhs, adding ₹9.91 Lakhs over the week. The poker pro, who has shifted base to London, is still the most profitable player of the year (and by a significant margin) with annual profits to the tune of ₹2.31 Crores!

Trailing the duo in the POY race is PokerGuru Ambassador Arjanveer Singh Chadha (annual winnings – ₹3.03 Crores). The Chandigarh-based poker pro is coming out of an immensely eventful week that saw him make five top-10 finishes, adding to an impressive ₹13.24 Lakhs, enough to push him past the ₹3 Crore milestone in annual winnings.

Since we’re still in the first week of the month, we will skip a separate mention of the monthly rankings.

Ashish Ahuja (weekly winnings – ₹30.88 Lakhs) was another PokerGuru Ambassador who rocked the online MTTs! In fact, Ahuja emerged as the week`s biggest scorer, boosting his annual tally to ₹2.90 Crores. He shipped PokerBaazi`s The MoneyMaker for ₹14.59 Lakhs on Saturday and the next day posted a runner-up finish in Spartan Poker’s Sunday High Roller (6-Max) for ₹8.61 Lakhs. Ahuja’s breakout run saw him climbing one spot to #4 on the annual charts, displacing Young Gun Arsh Grover.

The ITM #64 Main Event champion Tanmay Banera (weekly winnings – ₹21.36 Lakhs) and runner-up Navaneesha P (weekly winnings – ₹21.27 Lakhs) were the week`s other top scorers.
