In this feature, we bring you to the top three weekly, monthly, and yearly performers every Sunday. 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!

Gaurav Sood – naam toh suna hoga?! Well, this past week was all about the 25-year-old poker phenom who has cemented his place as the winningest MTT player in the country!

The dentist turned poker pro was the undisputed leaderboard topper last year and topped the charts for a record 34 weeks. And he has found his way back to the top of the 2021 leaderboard rankings, ending Manish Lakhotia`s eight-week reign as the #1 ranked player of the year.

Sood scripted a sizzling Thursday night run with two title victories worth a career-best ₹36.61 Lakhs. He trounced an 88-strong field in the WPT India Super Highroller, winning a personal-best ₹32.60 Lakhs. Sood also won the Trending Thursday on Spartan Poker for ₹3.85 Lakhs. His winnings boosted his annual winnings to ₹3.13 Crore, making him the first player to cross ₹3 Crores in yearly winnings. Sood’s resounding Thursday grind has also improved his profits tally to ₹1.58 Crores, helping him overtake PokerGuru Ambassador Laksh Pal Singh at the top of the annual profit charts.

Manish Lakhotia moves down to #2 on the annual leaderboard even as PokerGuru Ambassador Laksh Pal Singh stays put at #3.

Gaurav Sood`s list of accomplishments is extensive, and he crossed several other milestones. It`s no surprise then that he makes a clean sweep by topping the yearly, monthly, and weekly leaderboards.

Sood has added ₹62.44 Lakhs to his tally these past two weeks, effortlessly climbing to the top of the August leaderboard standings as well. The IOPC – The Crown champion Vaibhav Temani and WPT Super Highroller third-place finisher Anant Purohit round out the top three places on the August charts.

With ₹39.02 Lakhs in recorded winnings this week, Gaurav Sood headlines the weekly charts, with Anant Purohit and Young Gun Arsh Grover capping out the top three places on the weekly charts.

Anant Purohit was the other head turner this week. The MTT pro was recently blessed with an addition to the family – one of the primary reasons he seems to have put poker on the back burner for some time. He certainly hasn’t lost his winning touch, and last Sunday, Purohit took down the WPT India Bounty Championship for ₹7.35 Lakhs (including bounties). Like Sood, he had an intense Thursday grind and finished third in the WPT India Super Highroller while shipping PokerBaazi`s The Summit for the second time.

Purohit closed out the week with ₹32.02 Lakhs in total winnings and a hefty ₹25.58 Lakhs in profits. What a comeback!

Young Gun Arsh Grover went neck-to-neck with Gaurav Sood last year for the top position on the annual leaderboard, and he rounds out the top three places on the weekly charts this time.

While Grover’s The Millionaire score forms a substantial portion of the ₹24.63 Lakhs he collected this week, he also ran deep in the WPT India Super Highroller, where he, unfortunately, departed on the final table bubble in seventh place.
