The IPC Megastacks may be over, but most Indian crowds has reached Hanoi in Vietnam and are pulling big scores at the ongoing World Poker Tour (WPT) Vietnam! Only two days back, the IPC Megastacks ₹60K Main Event runner-up Aditya Sushant grabbed his second WPT trophy in Event #15: PLO. A total of nine Indians made it to Day 2 of the WPT Main Event, with Day 1C chip leader Zarvan Tumboli leading the team!

The biggest story back home on the online felts was the BB#8 EndBoss – India’s biggest online poker tournament but before we come to that, let’s look at how the annual POY standings look. Young Gun Anuj Yadav remained an unbeaten topper for the 12th consecutive week, and he sits with ₹2.10 Crores in annual cashes and a corresponding ₹1.15 Crores in annual profits.

The top three on the annual rankings remain the same. The #2 ranked Young Gun Arsh Grover is proving to be quite the steady runner to the top of the POY standings. In just under a month, Grover has added nearly ₹40 Lakhs to his online scorecard, covering significant distance with the reigning annual topper, Anuj Yadav. With ₹1.97 Crores in annual winnings, Grover will also very soon become the second Indian player to earn over ₹2 Crores this year.

Last week, we mentioned how the inaugural NPS Main Event champion Mohammad Azhar has fast climbed up the rankings on the back of a trailblazing week. Currently ranked #4, Azhar is threateningly close with less than ₹2 Lakhs separately the duo, Azhar sits with ₹1.64 Crores in annual cashes. It’ll be interesting to see whether Ahuja amps up his scorecard or Azhar takes over the coming week!

Now, about the EndBoss! Most Sundays are intense for online regs, but this past Sunday, Jitendra Gadhwal, the 26-year-old IT professional based out of Delhi, triumphed in the humungous 4,948-entry field in the ₹5 Crore GTD event to grab the top prize of ₹1 Crore. Surprisingly, we spoke to Gadhwal the next afternoon, and he was busy working. The IT professional who plays poker recreationally chose not to take a break after the long and tiring Sunday grind that has vaulted him straight to the top of the monthly and the weekly leaderboards!

That’s not all, Gadhwal has leaped the annual profit leaderboards, and with a whopping ₹98.61 Lakhs in profits, he is now ranked second to Anuj Yadav in the profit rankings.

The EndBoss runner-up Eshaan Kapoor ranks #2 on the monthly and weekly charts, with Mohammad Azhar rounding out the top three on the monthly leaderboard. The EndBoss third-place finisher Bhushan Sohani rounds out the podium for the week.
