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!

We would like to start this week’s ‘Online Rankings’ with a confession. We have run out of praises for Gaurav Sood. In February, when we had made this massively talented player our Young Gun, we knew he had it in him to make it big in poker someday. Well, he proved us right and how!

At just 25 years of age, Sood has been crushing the online MTT’s for most of the year! He has occupied the #1 rank in the annual leaderboard for 22 consecutive weeks and is the only player to have amassed over ₹3 Crores, precisely ₹3.68 Crores, in recorded earnings (across domestic platforms) in 2020! And all this with a whopping profit of ₹1.90 Crores.

This week, Sood was simply unstoppable. Over time, Sood has almost all the flagships; however, the prestigious Spartan Poker Millionaire title was missing from the list of his achievements. He finally added the Millionaire title to his kitty after taking down the GPS Millionaire United on Sunday night. But that wasn’t all. Sood also shipped the ₹30 Lakhs GTD GPS#28 Destiny and PokerBaazi’s ₹20 Lakhs GTD The Weekly HighRoller through the week to improve his online record to ₹5.85 Crores.

Adda52’s ₹1 Crore GTD Full House Finale champion Akash Gupta had banked the single-biggest score of ₹22 Lakhs this week. However, it was no match for Sood’s blockbuster week. Nevertheless, he did grab the second spot on both weekly and monthly rankings.

Young Gun Arsh Grover and online phenom Srihari Bang retained their second and third spots on the annual rankings, respectively, with PokerGuru Ambassador Ashish Ahuja closing in fast on them at #4.
